  • Personal History - Linda Chase
    The book These Goodbyes appeared in 1995 Since Fatchance Press was very small the book was only available for sale through Louise or me but it managed to get reviewed in several small and medium sized poetry magazines I still have some copies of this book for sale Still a beginner in contemporary British poetry I enrolled at Manchester Metropolitan University on the MA course in Creative Writing I loved being a student I even attended undergraduate lectures and seminars My tutors included Michael Schmidt Jeffrey Wainwright Simon Armitage and Caron Ann Duffy I had truly come to poetry heaven From Michael I learned that poetry had in fact begun before 1950 and that it even existed outside of the United States From Jeffrey I learned how to assess and consider the written word From Simon I leaned to stand behind my own work and from Carol Ann I learned to be daring But the most exciting moment came after I finished the course work when Michael invited me to submit a manuscript to Carcanet When I graduated in 2002 38 years between my two degrees in the same subject The Wedding Spy already had been published Soon after I was invited to teach a course called Verse to the young actors at The Arden School of Theatre where I already had been teaching Tai Chi for 12 years The course which I inherited from the inspired founder of the school Wyllie Longmore soon evolved into a workshop for reading and writing poetry The young actors showed extraordinary creative energy for all aspects of poetry which made teaching this course the most exciting job I ve ever had As well I did some part time teaching at MMU on the MA and on some undergraduate writing courses These classes were also a treat for me though my first task was to teach the workshops which Carol Ann Duffy would have taught had she not been on sabbatical These are not easy shoes to step into but eventually the students forgave me for not being Carol Ann and the term went very well Through my connections with young actors and creative writing students at the university I was aware how little opportunity there was for performance of new work The actors would prepare wonderful self devised pieces that would be played for the staff and their fellow students and then never again seen The writing students would produce fine work but never have the chance to read to a group other than their fellow students I felt that these young actors playwrights and poets needed a public performance platform in order to develop their work further I started the performance series Poets and Players in 2004 which received an Arts Council grant in 2006 Funding enabled me to pay the performers as well as myself and to produce lovely leaflets for each gig Venues include my own Tai Chi Village Hall in South Manchester The Whitworth Art Gallery and St Ann

    way sticking like a magnet to the erratic rhythms of those young men their jeans curving and cupping and making promises in all directions of things to come Which way to go you must have asked yourself a dozen times at least as the young man with the smile turned this way and the young man with the dreamy eyes turned that and you were dazed in circles spinning this
