Can a Poem Be an Object?

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

From handwritten Jenga blocks to interactive puzzles, what makes an object a poem?

Explore the possibilities inherent in object poetry with Stephen Emmerson, Vilde Valerie Bjerke Torset, Sarah Cave, Yvonne Litschel and Astra Papachristodoulou.

Join us to celebrate the work of contemporary UK-based poets who explore the performative aspect of tangible poems.

This poetry evening is the third of the event series Poem Atlas, showcasing dynamic, innovative and interactive poetry in the UK.
