Is the division of contemporary poetic activity into ‘mainstream’, ‘performance’ and ‘experimental’ a useful mapping device? What are the aims and practices of poets in these differing areas, and how accurate or useful do they perceive the terms to be?
Roddy Lumsden, Hannah Silva and Peter Finch, all poets with a national reputation, will perform a sample of their work and debate the implications of labels in contemporary poetry.
This is an event that promises to be as challenging and thought-provoking as it will be entertaining. Don’t miss out.
