Get in the mood for Valentine’s Weekend with Ulster University’s School of Arts and Humanities!

 

Lecturer in English, Dr Tim Hancock, a specialist in love poetry and modern literature, will introduce the evening with a talk about the different kinds of love that have (with the help of MRI scanners) been identified, their characteristic features, and how these features can be recognised in love poems through the ages.

 

The School boasts a flourishing Creative Writing program, and this event presents readings by eight accomplished undergraduate and graduate poets whose work has received local, national and international recognition. Join us for readings of moving, original, indelible love poems by Keilan Colville, Stephanie Conn, Sheanin Hughes, Angeline Kelly, Niamh McNally, Amanda Mironova-Stronge, Carolann North, and Kendra Reynolds.
