Troy Yorke to Guest at SpokenWord Paris July 3rd—Monday’s Theme: The City

TYORKE_MAIN_CMYKTroy Yorke’s poetry seeks beauty in the absurd and surreal, celebrating the darker corners of life, our minds, and our society with irreverence and humor. His work embraces the hidden brilliance in things we normally consider abhorrent and taboo, bringing marginalized voices centre-stage in a variety of experimental forms, language-play and character monologue. His works have been published in various literary magazines in North America and Europe, most recently in Upstairs at Duroc (Paris), and was included in the anthology The Best of Vine Leaves Literary Journal 2013 from Australia. He is currently on the editorial team for The Bastille, an Anglophone literary magazine based in Paris and released his first published collection of poetry Hole in My Side: Redemption of the Moon-Hooker in 2014.
