Black Cat Radio: Interview with Rosie Garland ONLINE

Wednesday 18th November 2020, 20.00 GMT

Hosted by the ‘Blogging Goth’ Tim Synyster and academic Dr Claire Nally, Black Cat Radio is an hour-long broadcast of music, news and discussion on goth – as well as sibling genres like punk, metal, industrial and other alternative styles.

It’s hosted by the kind people at Star & Shadow Cinema, a DIY community collective project in the bijou enclave of Heaton, Newcastle. Every second Wednesday at 8PM GMT we transmit the show online. Each show is available to listen again so it also sidles into the ‘podcast’ category.

As well as going live, we have another first when we return on Wednesday 18th November. Dr Nally sat down for a (Zoom) chat with the exceptionally multi-talented Rosie Garland – author, performer, compere, the very first writer in residence of the gothic splendour that is the John Rylands Library, and of course singer with famed post-punk band The March Violets, amongst her very many skills.
She and Dr Nally talked about her new poetry collection What Girls Do In The Dark - Tune in on the 18th November for the next episode of Black Cat Radio to hear what they discussed!
What Girls Do In The Dark is out now via Nine Arches Press and can be purchased directly from them or ordered through your local booksellers if you wish to avoid a certain multinational online vendor on this occasion!

Ensure you’re listening every second Wednesday

and join us in the chatroom to let us know just where on the gothosphere you’re tuning in from!

Join us to celebrate the launch of What Girls Do in the Dark by Rosie Garland

Join Rosie Garland plus guest poets Tania Hershman and Ian Humphreys to celebrate the publication of Rosie's new collection What Girls Do in the Dark.
Thursday 12 November 7.30pm (GMT)
This event will be streamed live through the Nine Arches Press YouTube channel.
https://www.youtube.com/user/NineArchesPress/videos
Those who register to 'attend' will receive an event link by email the day before the event.


What Girls Do in the Dark invites us to leap into deep space, to venture through strange night-time transformations, to discover not just outer-space, but inner space, where the body and the self are made of infinite galaxies. Rooted in the gothic imagination, mythology and the uncanny, these poems contain magnitudes and magic, feminist fables starstruck with science and astronomy.


Rosie is joined by writer Tania Hershman. How High Did She Fly was joint winner of Live Canon's 2019 Poetry Pamphlet Competition. Her hybrid particle-physics-inspired book and what if we were all allowed to disappear was published in March by Guillemot Press. Tania is also the author of Terms and Conditions (Nine Arches, 2017), a poetry chapbook and three short story collections, and co-author of Writing Short Stories: A Writers' & Artists' Companion (Bloomsbury, 2014). She is co-creator of @OnThisDayShe and curator of short story hub ShortStops.
Rosie is also joined by Ian Humphreys, a West Yorkshire based poet. His debut collection Zebra was published by Nine Arches Press in 2019. His work is widely published in journals including The Poetry Review, The Rialto and Magma. Awards include first prize in the Hamish Canham Prize, and highly commended in the Forward Prizes. Zebra was nominated for the Portico Prize. A fellow of The Complete Works, Ian’s poems are showcased in Ten: Poets of the New Generation (Bloodaxe).

Publication day: What Girls Do in the Dark (Nine Arches Press)

Rosie Garland’s dauntless and enthralling new poetry collection, What Girls Do in the Dark, invites us to leap into deep space - across a universe where light, names, place and time become the “distance between things that stand like sisters”. We venture through strange night-time transformations, between northerly points and places of being and not-being. In a twilight alive with glimmering energy, we discover not just outer-space, but inner space – where the body and the self are made of infinite galaxies, illuminated for the briefest blink of a life.
Garland’s poetry is rooted in the realm of gothic imagination, mythology and the uncanny. It contains magnitudes and magic, feminist fables starstruck with science and astronomy. Like comets, these dazzling poems explore containment, liberation, near-misses, extinction, and ultimately, they ask what it means to escape the pull of gravity and blaze your own bright, all-consuming and astonishing path.

17-21.8.2020 - Leeds Digital Pride ONLINE

Digital Pride Programme

Starting on Monday 17 August, celebrations of Leeds Pride will be showcased across a range of digital channels. The full programme is below:

Pride Film Festival
The University of Leeds, Leeds Arts University and Leeds Beckett University have collaborated with Hyde Park Picture House to create a self-curating LGBT+ film programme. The programme provides links to more than 25 films, both long and short form, which can be navigated as a personal mini Pride Film Festival.
We are really excited about the programme, with Leeds’ friendly, local indie cinema Hyde Park Picture house profiling a new film every day. It includes suggestions from LGBT+ author, musician, poet Rosie Garland (aka Rosie Lugosi); and members of the LGBT+ networks at the three coordinating universities.

The full film listing will go live on the University’s Medium account later this week. Follow the University of Leeds on twitter where we will be sharing all Medium articles as they go live throughout the week.

23.7.2020 - Rebel Dykes Film Club ONLINE

REBEL DYKES HISTORY PROJECT CiC
REBEL DYKES FILM CLUB The Hunger (1983)
Time & Location
23 Jul, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Zoom event

The Hunger is the 1983 Tony Scott film described by Roger Ebert as “an agonizingly bad vampire movie”. The film has yet acquired cult status, not least because of its leading cast of Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. . Some praised its bisexual and lesbian themes while others just found it erotically-charged and good-looking. Stevie Nicks recently cited it as one of her favourite moments of Bowie’s career, declaring it “creepy and strange and amazingly beautiful.”
Special Guest Rosie Garland

DIRECTOR: TONY SCOTT CAST: CATHERINE DENEUVE, DAVID BOWIE, SUSAN SARANDON1983 / 97min / 35mm
A lush vampire romance with sex and style to spare, much of it provided by stars Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie as a couple of posh, centuries-old nightclubbing New York bloodsuckers who, when one begins to show the first signs of aging, recruit assistance from Susan Sarandon’s geriatrics researcher, then find themselves in a very, very attractive throuple. Yes, that’s “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” artists Bauhaus in a brief cameo.

The Film Club runs from 7pm - 10pm (ish) BST. After a bit of an intro, you'll stream the film in your own home - the cost is around £3.50. Some films we will be sharing are free to stream.

Then we'll get together sometime around 9.30pm BST for something special.
We are delighted to welcome special guest Rosie Garland aka Rosie Lugosi!

Film Club is for dykes and allies of all genders, all generations (over 18).
