Spread the Word: London Writers Awards Showcase
Royal Festival Hall, London
Join squad grad Helen Bowell for a night of poetry from this year’s winners of the London Writers Award. Helen will be joined by the five other winners, Annie Hayter, Jamie Hale, Jemilea Wisdom-Baako, Lily Paine and Merrie Joy Williams.
From Hong Kong to the English countryside, through interrogations of the womb as a living archive, to the self-preserving act of finding hope in the darkest of spaces, arriving as visions between myths of past and present, these poets reflect the diversity and richness of poetry in London today.
