Songs of Steelyard Sue
Saturday 17th June 2017 @ 4:25 pm - 5:10 pmFree
A rare opportunity to hear J.S.Watts perform the entirety of her award-nominated (Saboteur Awards 2013 and SFPA Elgin Awards 2013) SF poetry sequence, Songs of Steelyard Sue.
Scratching out an existence on a world humanity has trashed and left to rust, Steelyard Sue is a future everyman (or, to be precise a future-world every mechanoid female) trying to make a place for herself. Expect humour, pathos and robots.
“Funny and sad, these poems are a real achievement” – Handshake
“There’s nothing mechanical about J. S. Watts’ poetry. It has heart and soul, and it sings” – Science Fiction Poetry Association
“poetic parables filled with pathos and wit… the verve and imagination of Watts’s Songs make this pamphlet unique.” Cameron Brady-Turner for Sabotage Reviews
