"Both terrifying and hugely enjoyable. I absolutely loved it." – Jon McGregor.

"There is a patience and rhythm deep in the prose. This is going to make a mark." – Cynan Jones. 

Dr Ben Smith will be reading from and discussing his debut novel, Doggerland, a tale of fathers and sons, loneliness and survival, set against the backdrop of a water-filled landscape. 

Ben, a Lecturer in creative writing at the University of Plymouth, specialises in environmental literature with a particular focus on oceans, climate change and the Anthropocene. His poetry has been published in numerous journals and anthologies, and his chapbook Sky Burials was published by Worple Press.
