Poetry In The News



Let’s see what’s on offer in the midst of the Doom And Gloom (aka News) today, then.

Jaspreet Kaur, secondary school teacher by profession, slam poet by passion, here is a voice for inspiring women and affecting social change. Beautiful, beautiful words.

A long, informative read about Osip Mandelstam and how it was to be a poet under Stalin’s regime.

Monica Payne brings Wislawa Szymborska’s poetry to the stage.

The Stratford Poetry Festival is coming up soon; here’s some of the things to look forward to.

And finally, have you read/heard of In Praise Of Air by Simon Armitage? This is a poem that has been printed on a material that purifies its surroundings using catalytic oxidation – so if anyone tries to claim science can’t be poetic: wrong! The poem is now being auctioned off to raise money for lung disease in the UK.

I hope your weeks are going well!
