Poem Brut

Join a literary event celebrating the visual, visceral, messy, handwritten and colourful in poetry.

With commissions from writers exploring alternate ways of making literature, this event features new work from Maja Jantar, Saradha Soobrayen, SJ Fowler and more.

Each presentation is different from the last, with readings and performances presented alongside pop-up exhibits, video poems and interactions.

Poem Brut is an exploration of poetry and colour, handwriting, composition, abstraction, scribbling, and illustration, affirming the possibilities of the page, the pen, and the pencil – in a computer age.
They put on over a dozen events, multiple exhibitions, workshops, conferences and publications.
