Event description

Description

Let's fill this city with poets!


July's Theme: We'll be dealing with some sensitivity as we explore and try to understand the plight of your words being censored. So lucky to be here in a country where there isn't much you can't say as we navigate this terrible political climate but this is not the case in most nations across the globe. Taking inspiration from the incredible organisation, Index on Censorship, we will be using Censorship as a writing tool as well as a chance to breathe new life into forgotten poems from poets that were punished for their art and point of view.


Join me, Fausta Joly @fauifesto as we delve through three exercises, leaving you with AT LEAST three poems.


We will also be joined by wordsmith, Edin Suljic as he uses poetry to expand on ideas of displacement and censorship, right here in the U.K. Using his journey to put the country he had to call home, under a lens.


If you have an interest in poetry and want to hone your skills, come on down and write with us while sipping on some counter culture wine at Diogenes The Dog, 96 Rodney Road, SE17 1BG.
ONE OF THE TOP RATED WINE BARS IN THE CAPITAL!
