The Dock Road is new publishing press that provides a platform for established and emerging poets, writers and spoken word artists. The Dock Road Press celebrates experimental approaches to writing and performance, encouraging informal innovation, poetic deviance and risk. Alternating between the page, performance, language and text, the Dock Road presents a series of readings to celebrate its launch at the Everyman Bistro in Liverpool. Invited readers for our opening event ‘Gramophone Ray Gun’ include Nathan Walker, Helen Tookey, Tom Jenks and Cathy Butterworth, each punked up on esoteric sounds and strange aesthetics.
ADMISSION £3 ON THE DOOR
