    #6 From Rightmove to Writing | with Jane Griffiths

    #6 From Rightmove to Writing | with Jane Griffiths

    Jane Griffiths is Fellow in English at Wadham. She recently published her sixth poetry collection, Little Silver.
    One day, while browsing Rightmove, Jane discovered a clue that her childhood home was at risk of demolition. The book’s title sequence responds to what she discovered when following that clue...
    In this Wadcast, Jane reads a few poems from the collection and discusses their themes, her writing process, what it means to be a poet and academic, and more.

    Details for the launch of Little Silver at Wadham College can be found here.

    Little Silver is available to purchase here.
