Grown Up Poetry Needs to Leave Me Alone is the debut poetry pamphlet from award-winning spoken word poet Carly Brown, published by Knockingdoor Press in 2014. In these vibrant and witty poems, Carly explores a range of topics from break-ups to T.S Eliot to the crushing realization that Santa Claus is not real.

‘With each poem there is a refreshing comedic integrity but also a brilliant truth that both enlightens and terrifies.’ – Selcouth Station, review of Grown Up Poetry Needs to Leave Me Alone

The cover art and typographic design was created by American artist Lydia Cruz. The typographic design is based on actual performances of each poem and attempts to capture such non-textual elements as speed, emphasis, volume and space.

Carly Brown was Scotland’s National Champion of Slam Poetry in 2013 and placed 4th at the World Series of Slam Poetry in Paris. She’s also the author of a picture book, I Love St Andrews. https://carlyjbrown.com
