Aston Writer in Residence publishes new collection of poetry

Heinrich Detering, our DAAD Writer in Residence in 2014, has just published his new collection of poetry.


Wundertiere not just includes a number of poems that he worked on during his time at Aston, in some cases discussing them with students during the various workshops he delivered.

His visit to the second city left its undeniable  traces in the volume as it also features a fine poem entitled “Birmingham”.
