'Stand' at sixty
Join Stand magazine for two days of poetry, prose, readings and masterclasses to celebrate its sixtieth birthday.
Founded in 1952 with the five pounds Jon Silkin received as redundancy money, Stand was set up to represent the arts, poetry and fiction in the fight against justice and oppression.
The quarterly magazine searches for inventive, radical or experimental work and features the best in new writing, poetry, fiction and criticism, having published early work by many writers who have gone on to become established figures such as Tony Harrison and Jeffrey Wainwright.
Stand is an independant publication but works in close association with the School of English here at the University, who will be hosting the magazine's birthday celebrations in September with activities such as poetry and fiction masterclasses.
The celebrations will take place:
On: Friday 14 & Saturday 15 September
At: Various times
In: Workshop Theatre, School of English
