Calvert 22 with Offpress

The work of Marek Kazmierski and Offpress is the kind of work Id like to be doing with Maintenant, its genuinely valuable and completely relentless. He was kind enough to invite me to chat about translation, and to allow me to invite others to do the same as well, when an event was staged at the Calvert 22 gallery in Shoreditch for the end of an exhibition on translated Polish poetry, which is what Offpress does. It is remarkable how much more fun it is to read someone else's work, and I am slowly becoming more acclimatised to reading in a gallery space rather than a boardroom / pub. The night rather belonged to Tim Atkins in my opinion though.
