In this RAI-supported project led by Heidi Williamson and Sylee Gore, sixteen contemporary UK and US poets created new poems in response to work in PennSound – the world’s largest audio and video archive of poetry and poetics.
These poets, affiliated either with Oxford University or Kelly Writers House, have produced a diverse range of pieces in conversation with poets from centuries ago to today.
A live reading
These exciting new pieces will be performed in a hybrid transatlantic reading at the RAI on Thursday 4th May at 5pm London time.
Poets reading include:
Yousif M Qasmiyeh
The readings will be followed by a reception in the RAI Common Room
A new poetry chapbook
The poems have been captured in a thought-provoking chapbook, which will be downloadable for free, here, after the reading.
