Cambridge, UK: Pat Borthwick and Kate Rhodes read at Michaelhouse

Pat Borthwick and Kate Rhodes read at Michaelhouse, on Trinity Street, tonight. The event also features short poem floor spots, books for sale and a licensed bar. Doors open at 7:30pm. £5 / £3 concessions.

Pat Borthwick was awarded a Hawthornden fellowship in 2003. She has published two full length collections, 'Between Clouds and Caves' (Littlewood Arc, 1990) and 'Swim' (Mudfrog, 2005). Her latest pamphlet, 'Wave' (Hearing Eye) was a prizewinner in the 2007 Templar poetry competition.

Kate Rhodes' poems have appeared in The Guardian and The Independent on Sunday, and she won third place in the 2007 Bridport Prize. Enitharmon published Kate’s first full collection, Reversal in 2005. The book moves confidently across an eclectic range of subjects from a portrait of Alfred Wallis to a one-to-one dialogue with Damien Hirst's shark, all written in a style that Don Paterson commends as 'pared to the bone, elegant and precise.'
