"On October 15th 2011, 3:AM Magazine’s Maintenant series hosted it’s largest event so far at the Rich Mix centre near Brick Lane in London. Poets from Russia, Macedonia and Latvia joined nine pairs of British poets in a memorable evening of performance and poetry. The British poets were paired as part of the first Maintenant Camarade project, with their efforts published in a chapbook by the Red Ceilings press. The videos below are shown in the order of the readings given on the evening, an event which showed the depth of talent, inventiveness and wit in contemporary European poetry."
Thanks to everyone who came, it was by far our best event, both in attendance and quality. Thanks to Literature across frontiers and Arc publications, and of course to all of the 23 readers, who read remarkably. It was a special evening and I'm happy to say the next Camarade project has commenced, and the reading will take place next February at the Rich mix centre.
