In the second instalment of Julian’s contemporary poetry workshop series, Don’t Call Us Dead, participants will be exploring the works of American poets of colour – such as Jericho Brown, Danez Smith, Tracy K Smith, and Patricia Smith.
The workshop will be hosted at The Dugdale Centre in Enfield on November 7th, from 7:30-9:30pm. The evening will include a couple of suggested prompts, and will begin with a quick read-around from those who tackled the prompts of the previous session.
There are 12 spaces available, at £5 each to cover room hire. Email Julian to express interest: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tea and coffee will be provided.
Member Ruth Ingram convenes a group of poets and translators of poems from French and German. The group has been meeting for the last 10 years and has published an anthology of poetry translations, Over the Water (Hearing Eye, 2007). Another anthology is in preparation.
The group meets bi-monthly for a whole day in Central London. Members work on each others translations. There are at present 10 members. Two more could be accomodated translating from French (poet-translators from German would also be considered). There is no fee, but prospective members are asked to submit four translated poems of their choice for the group to consider. Email ruth.camdenmews at blueyonder.co.uk.
