Wednesday 24th February 8.00pm-9.00pm
Romalyn Ante has blogged about the parallels between the art of writing poetry and being a nurse – how both of these activities ask that the practitioner really listens and pays attention. Her first collection Antiemetic for Homesickness invites us to do the same, in a series of moving and tender explorations of migration, family and the world of work. Carolyn Forché is renowned for her work as a ‘poet of witness’, writing poems that refuse to look away from difficult subject matter. Her latest Bloodaxe collection In The Lateness of the World is unforgettable – beautifully rhythmic and incantatory, and always insisting on poetry’s power to transform and heal. Our Young Poet-in-Residence Heather Hughes will also perform at this event.
