Newcastle Poetry Festival
02 May 2018 - 05 May 2018
Sage Gateshead, Northern Stage, Newcastle University
A four-day celebration of the finest poetry from around the world by some of the art’s most acclaimed practitioners, involving readings, lectures, discussions, workshops, and multi-genre performances (music, painting, film), with the theme of crossings – between countries, languages, and art forms – at its heart. Including readings from Jorie Graham, Ilya Kaminsky, Emily Berry, Sasha Dugdale, Ciaran Carson, Denise Riley, Sean O’Brien, Luke Kennard, and Imtiaz Dharker. Plus an exclusive jazz-poetry collaboration between Binker & Moses and Tyehimba Jess.
