Modern Poetry in Translation Celebration

Part of London Literature Festival

Raise a glass to long-running journal Modern Poetry in Translation with readings from poets who have come to the festival, including Stephen Watts, and a chance to congratulate current editor Sasha Dugdale on her final issue.

For over 50 years, Modern Poetry in Translation has been a major platform for the sharing of ideas, debate and poetry across languages and borders. Established by Ted Hughes in 1965, the magazine was part of the same drive towards global unity that led to the creation of Poetry International itself.
