A note on: resurrecting The Covers Project


Poets rarely cover their peers or poets from the past who have influenced them. The Covers Project began in 2011, and has run intermittently, as a video series, allowing myself and the poets involved to choose from their contemporaries or those who have had a profound affect upon their work, and read their work, to make it new in their voices. Over 50 covers are available https://coversproject.wordpress.com/

I began to record my own covers more regularly in 2016, not only to show testament to those who have helped me grow as a writer but to document spaces I find myself in when travelling or in London. On the page you'll find covers of Blaise Cendrars, Tom Raworth, Bill Griffiths, Christodoulos Makris, Nikos Engonopoulos, Chris McCabe, Anselm Hollo, Marcus Slease and a few covers of my work, offered by those I've met when travelling. http://www.stevenjfowler.com/covers
