Birkbeck Poets join the events for Arts Week 2016.

 

The tenth reading in the series will take place in the relaxed and atmospheric setting of the Duke of Wellington, Dalston where Birkbeck poetry students and graduates will perform alongside critically acclaimed poets Keith Jarrett, Fran Lock and Martina Evans.

We have decided to relax our submission policy so that all can contribute. Readings are limited to one poem per person and bring an extra poem just in case there’s extra time. Email us at bbkpoets@gmail.com to let us know.

Sunday 22nd May, 6.30 for 7pm

Admission: Free
