It's Dyslexia Awareness Week!

Posted on October 08, 2015 by Yen-Yen Lu | 0 comments

Most of you will know that it is National Poetry Day today, but what some of you might not already know is that it is also Dyslexia Awareness Week! Organised by the British Dyslexia Association, the theme of 2015 is ‘Making Sense of Dyslexia’, which focuses on the support and interventions available and the impact that this has on the dyslexic community. Events will be taking place across the country: more information can be found on their website.

A new collection of poetry from Inpress, published by Burning Eye Books, is A.F. Harrold’s Things You Find in a Poet’s Beard, which has been printed in a dyslexia-friendly font and also features wonderful illustrations by Chris Riddell, whose recent works include Goth Girl. It’s a fantastic collection and has been featured in our weekly newsletter. You can get a copy of Things You Find in a Poet’s Beard on our website and, in joint celebration with National Poetry Day, you can take 25% off your order with the code NPD2015.

This will not be news to a lot of people reading this but tomorrow is National Poetry Day!

We love Radio 6 in the Inpress office so we are particularly excited that Nine Arches Press poet Jo Bell will be on the Radcliffe  and Maconie show tomorrow chatting about all things poetry. We also hope she will share a poem or two from her latest collection, Kith

Tune in at 3pm so you don’t miss it! ...Or before 3pm, it’s a jolly good show and John Cooper Clarke will be there too! You could even hang around with RadMac for Teatime Themetime!

The excitement doesn’t stop there either. Jo will be appearing on Radio 4 tomorrow evening from 8.15pm as part of their live discussion about poetry from the mid-twentieth century to the present day. Andrew Marr will be hosting the show with guests, Simon Armitage, Juliet Gardiner, Kate Tempest, Kei Miller and Glyn Maxwell.

Jo Bell’s latest collection, Kith, is one of our favourites from this year and to celebrate National Poetry Day you can get 25% off this along with our other top poetry titles from 2015 with the code NPD2015.
