This event sees the launch of Guildford poet Susie Campbell's new chapbook of poems and photographs, 'I return to you', inspired by a Christmas visit to the Guildford Spike. In addition, this night will be a celebration of chapbook poetry, featuring three other local poets whose chapbooks have been published by Sampson Low Ltd. Lucy Furlong, Astra Papachristodoulou and Julia Rose Lewis are exciting, acclaimed poets who live in or near Guildford.

The first event of the series Wissen der Dichtung part II is set in the future, between poetry and science. Two poets whose works oscillate between science and science fiction meet.
In his poems, Oswald Egger (born in 1963 in Tscherms, South Tyrol) is roaming through nature dispersing in a biological-fantastic taxonomy or doing basic research on the correlation between poetry and mathematics. Aase Berg's (born in 1967) poetry combines science fiction, dystopia, horror and trash with physical laws of the creation of earth.
Aase Berg and Oswald Egger will be reading poems and talking about the future of poetry – that might as well be the future of science – with Asmus Trautsch.
Poetry has always been the predominant genre of Sami literature. On this evening, three poets from Sweden, Norway and Finland will read their texts and talk about Sami poetry: Johan Sandberg McGuinne, Sigbjørn Skåden and Inger-Mari Aikio.
