The next instalment of the European Poetry Festival will be a one night camarade with 28 poets from 20 countries presenting new collaborations in pairs. It's going to be grand, so many really interesting writers coming together and many European poets living in London and across the UK, and this is key to my aims with the fest. Lots of poets brand new to my events too, which is another important facet to what I try to organise. https://www.europeanpoetryfestival.com/eurocamarade
I'm always delighted to announce the next full festival will happen in 2019 April 5th to 17th.
For my own part I'll be collaborating with Diamanda Dramm, one of the most exciting young musicians in Europe.
We've been working together for over six months now, Diamanda creating new pieces with texts that I've written for her. October 13th will be the first night we'll work together live. I met Diamanda in Dublin, both of us performing, and she's doing really exciting things with the use of poetry alongside her magical music talent, which is pretty remarkable.
