Publicity material for this event says:

One definition of jizz in the Oxford English Dictionary is the “characteristic impression given by a particular species”. In his poetry, John Davies captures the jizz of a particular moment or experience, the variegation, zest, piquancy and poignancy of life itself.

Jizz is a bird’s eye view on life that’s both touching and playful. It’s a whizz round life’s big events and little foibles, a quick flutter through beginnings and endings – and all kinds of birds. These are snapshots of a life lived, delights and griefs, moments of drama or comedy, insights behind the world we take for granted or gratitude for the fact that we can.

Join poet, John Davies, at the launch of Jizz: New & Selected Poems, published by Kingston University Press. John will be reading from his new collection. 

Copies of the collection will be available for purchase. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the door.
