Play With Me free pdf From NHS overdose clinics to overrun gardens, talking Cambodian treehouses to the teenage perversion of a young Scot on a French Exchange, Pedersen's poetry is a rich and fantastical feast of flavours, landscape and language. On the menu is everything from iced oysters and chateaubriand to pickled onions and Buckfast-soaked bread sticks. Like the man himself, these poems will tingle toes and raise eyebrows in equal measures. Michael Pederson is slowly building a reputation as a name to look out for, and has received plaudits from Stephen Fry and Irvine Welsh- as a spoken work poet, his readings are as memorable as they are witty, laced with an electric energy, as he recites from memory his highly engaging, accessible poetry. Michael Pederson, along with Kevin Williamson, hosts Neu! Reekie!, avant-garde nights of poetry, music and animated short films.

About Michael Pedersen

Michael Pedersen (b. 1984) is a poet, playwright and animateur with an electric reputation on the performance circuit and a prolific precedent of collaborations, having teamed up with some of the UK's top musicians, film-makers and artists. He is widely published in magazines, journals, anthologies and e-zines- his inaugural chapbook 'Part-Truths' (Koo Press) was a Callum MacDonald Memorial Award finalist- its sequel 'The Basic Algebra of Buttering Bread' (Windfall Books) received flocks of reviewer plaudits. He is co-founder and circus master at Neu! Reekie! - now one of the country's most formidable literary nights and DIY record labels - and a key creative within Dream Tower Productions. He's also the lyricist for cult band Jesus, Baby! and has written short plays for various troupes including the National Theatre of Scotland. Having travelled the world and taught in Cambodia for a year, Pedersen writes verse that gives a vivid idea of what it is to be young, socially aware and irrepressibly optimistic in the melting pot of the twenty-first century. He also enjoys sewing.
