Jeramy Dodds, Matt Tierney, and Taylor Leedahl rocked the house!

I had the absolute privilege of being at the reading on April 22, 2009, by Taylor Leedahl, Matthew Tierney, and future Griffin-prize winner Jeramy Dodds. It was an amazing reading with something for everyone. Taylor's a young poet with a strong sense of herself - you might know her from Flint's (in)famous "Tonight It's Poetry" sessions on Sunday nights. She's a poet to watch.

Matt Tierney treated us to poems about phobias and the eighties - two things my sense of quirkiness finds intriguing. Check out the Book Trailer for The Hayflick Limit.

And Jeramy Dodds ended the evening with a brilliant reading. Power and absolutely breathtaking poetry. If he doesn't win the Griffin, I'll be surprised. If you've got the chance to hear him read, take it. You won't be disappointed.
