Not Even This – Poetry, Parenthood, and Living Uncertainty

Jack Underwood and Ben Pester

Award-winning Poet and author, Jack Underwood introduces his new book Not Even This – in which he explores how becoming a father has compelled him to reconsider the certainties of the world around him. He will be in conversation with writer Ben Pester, also a father, also struggling with uncertainty in his work – as well as unreality. Together they will discuss how it feels to write in a time of increasing global uncertainty, what it means to let go of the idea of control as a parent, and when exactly all of this supposed to get done!
