Goldsmiths shorts with Momtaza Mehri, Will Jamieson and Bron Burgess
The Goldsmiths Shorts pamphlet series brings together poetry, fiction and non-fiction by alumni from across the creative writing programmes within the Department of English and Comparative Literature. The pamphlets are selected by an editorial board comprised of staff, external writers and industry professionals. This evening Bron Burgess and Will Jamieson appear alongside former Goldsmiths student and Young People’s Laureate for London, Momtaza Mehri. The event is chaired by the series editor Jack Underwood
Momtaza Mehri is the co-winner of the 2018 Brunel International African Poetry Prize. Her work has been widely anthologised, appearing in Granta, Artforum, Poetry International, Vogue and Real Life Mag. She is the former columnist-in-residence at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Open Space. Her chapbook Sugah Lump Prayer was published in 2017.
Will Jamieson grew up in Singapore, left in 2010, and has spent the last nine years returning to it in his writing and his research. His work is concerned with the integration of political geography and literary theory. He has published fiction in Ambit, critical creative writing in GeoHumanities, and other writing about Singapore in Failed Architecture.
