Graduate Aaron Kent secures book deal with Eyewear Books
Graduate Aaron Kent has recently signed a two-book poetry deal with Eyewear Books. His first book, Tertiary Colours: A Post-Traumatic Verse will be released later this year and Aaron's full-length collection Blood Fjørd '89 will be released in 2018.
Tertiary Colours explores a range of previous traumas in Kent's life, from his childhood to his time as a submariner. Wyl Menmuir, writer-in-residence at Falmouth University, called it 'frenetic and fine-tuned, raw and refined, excoriating and exhilarating.' Amanda Lovelace (The Princess Saves Herself in this One) said that it is 'a vodka-induced nightmare [...] begging you with every page to unravel its intricate parts and let it be heard. And when it is, the walls bleed.'
Aaron graduated from the BA English with Creative Writing at Falmouth in 2015 and continued his studies with an MA Film and TV in 2016. Aaron runs the website Poetic Interviews which features verse interviews with a range of poets including James Franco, Sabrina Mahfouz, Luke Wright, Ross Sutherland, Phillip B Williams, and Amanda Lovelace. He is currently working on an experimental poem-novel titled Subsequent Death, inspired by the works of Max Porter, Mark Z Danielewski, and Markus Zusak.
