The first ever European Poetry Night as part of European Literature Festival in 2016

An amazing opportunity to see some of the most exciting contemporary poets from all over Europe, as over 20 poets travel to London to share brand new collaborative poems, premiered on the night and written for the occasion, in pairs, across languages, styles & nations. These are the best and brightest, from Iceland to Turkey, from Ireland to Russia, from France to Slovakia – a unique evening of modern literature which will show the power of 21st century poetry in the literary and avant-garde traditions, and the possibilities of collaboration to bring out that power and form communities of writers. Curated by SJ Fowler.
