World Poetry Summit
Come to the World Poetry Summit, we’re sure you’ll gain lots from it. See Claudia Rankine in the Royal Festival Hall, poetry about women's & BAME rights - what a ball. Well, after that train wreck we're guessing you poetry fiends will want the proper stuff and this event will deliver just that. As part of the London Literature Festival, this gathering will welcome international big dogs in the poetry world, we're talking Arundhathi Subramaniam, Sjón, Yang Lian and Anne Carson to name a few. Their aim is to celebrate the transformative power of poetry, and with that many award-winning poets in one place (and a grand place at that), we're pretty sure they'll do a good job of it. Part of the London Literature Festival at Southbank Centre.
