Stand & Friends
Thursday 8 March
Stand and Friends


Partnership event with Stand magazine
Stand Magazine
The international quarterly Stand has been a significant feature on the literary scene since its foundation by the poet Jon Silkin in 1952. Over the last sixty years it has published work by leading poets and novelists, including Alison Brackenbury, Vahni Capildeo, Geoffrey Hill, Tony Harrison, Helen Mort, Ken Smith, Anne Stevenson and Peter Carey. It has always provided opportunities for emerging poets and writers. An independent charitable body, it is currently published from the School of English at the University of Leeds.

Members of the current editorial board - Jon Glover, Elaine Glover and John Whale - invite you to a reading with friends of Stand which will celebrate the past and present of the magazine.
