XpoNorth 2022 | Poetry Now!

The boom in interest in poetry shows no sign of decline. From the emergence of ‘Instapoets’ with their millions of followers, to increased traditional book sales, sell-out readings, slams and spoken word events, poetry is clearly more and more accessible, necessary and relevant to our daily lives than ever before. So where are we now? Where is poetry publishing now? Where is poetry performance now? What are the key considerations, the options and opportunities for writers to take their poetry and spoken word works to new audiences? What’s driving this change? In this session, we are joined by two of the UK’s ground-breaking poets, Neu Reekie’s Michael Pedersen, and this year’s TS Eliot Prize-winning poet, Joelle Taylor. Chaired by Peter Urpeth
