This is excellent news! Nathan Jones is a wonderful poet, writer and performer. As good as any and better than most of the long line of great Liverpool poets (ok, he’s from Wales but he’s been here long enough). I hope this doesn’t sound too gushing but I really am a fan, I’ve just been reading his blog about the residency, he’ll be responding to the various exhibitions amongst other things whilst he’s there.
“Nathan Jones will spend a year working within the Bluecoat, developing the model of a flexible and pivotal poet in residence, exploring the connections between interpretations of modern art, contemporary poetry, and arts audiences.”
