About Double Bill: Yvonne Reddick & Dawn Watson
An urgent, politically-charged double bill from two exciting writers. Yvonne Reddick's Burning Season is a book of fire and survival, climate change and nature's defiance. Combining poems with nature diaries and lyric essays, Reddick traces a family history of involvement in extractive fossil fuel industries alongside a paradoxical love of mountain landscapes and the natural world. Burning Season is longlisted for the 2023 Laurel Prize, and its title poem was a prizewinner in the Ginkgo Prize for Ecopoetry.
We Play Here is a new collection of four poem stories from Dawn Watson. Set in a politically charged, underdeveloped part of Protestant North Belfast in 1988, it portrays the experiences of four young female friends transitioning from primary to high school amidst poverty and normalised violence. The collection offers a radical look at girlhood and friendship, capturing a period of innocence tinged with hidden menace before gender roles make themselves strongly known.
