EPF 2019 #1 : Event ~1 - Opening the festival in Kingston (April 4th)

A brilliant opening to the 2019 European Poetry Festival. This fest has become my primary focus in curating live literature, and it has been the source of immense enthusiasm and joy for me, bringing so many brilliant poets to the UK. This event was a chance to overlap my work at Kingston Uni, and directing the Writers’ Centre of the university, with the fest. The focus was Norwegian poetry, and we launched four brand new books, translations and first time publications, amidst readings by visiting and local Europoets. The Rose Theatre david jacobs room was packed out, full housed, and the atmosphere was funny, generous and playful. The beautiful pictures by Alexander Kell below attest to that.
