    James Weldon Johnson was an American author, educator, lawyer, diplomat, songwriter, and civil rights activist. Johnson is best remembered for his leadership of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), where he started working in 1917. In 1920 he was the first black to be chosen as executive secretary of the organization, effectively the operating officer. He served in that position from 1920 to 1930. Johnson established his reputation as a writer, and was known during the Harlem Renaissance for his poems, novels, and anthologies collecting both poems and spirituals of black culture.

    The third in a trilogy by acclaimed poet-geographer Tim Cresswell, Plastiglomerate charts the relentless impact of mankind on the environment. The central poem recycles the British folk ballad 'The Twa Magicians' to make a magnificent, troubling ecological protest song. From plastic pollution and wrecked vessels to forest fires and melting icecaps, Cresswell writes vital, urgent poetry for the Anthropocene age.
    His earlier collection Fence has been described by Rob McFarlane as 'A strange and spectral volume, born of a fence that separates nowhere from the now and here, deep in the high Arctic.'

    Bull opened at Crucible Studio Theatre, Sheffield, in February 2013 in a Sheffield Theatres Production, directed by Clare Lizzimore.
    'Sinewy, stinging, witty... it's as if Bartlett has taken the nastiest needling from a Mamet or a Pinter play and put them into a space of pure verbal aggression' The Times
    'A writer with a startling breadth of ambition coupled with an ear for dialogue unmatched by many of his contemporaries... Bull taps into something incredibly relevant and potent' Exeunt Magazine

    Aemilia Lanyer's 1611 poem is far more than a retelling of The Passion.  It comprises a spirited defense of Eve (and, by extension, all women), elegant praises for her female patrons, a catalogue of virtuous women of the ancient world, and closes with the first "country house" poem written by a woman in English. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)
