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: email@example.com
Tea and coffee will be provided.
Julian Bishop and Jack Cooper, together with Enfield poet Mary Duggan, will be reading at the Torriano Meeting House on Sunday 29th September.
The evening will start at 7:30pm with an Open Mic. Following a break, the featured poets will perform for 15-20 minutes each.
The Torriano Meeting House has been host to Sunday night poetry since 1982, and the £5 door fee goes towards maintaining this historic venue. Wine and snacks will be provided.
Julian, Jack, and Mary look forward to seeing you there!
