Discussion - REVOLTING POETS: poetry in working-class and social movements

02/07/2017 - 13:00

A panel of three performing poets will talk about issues including: 1980s 'ranting poetry'; the misrepresentation of working-class poets; and rhyming solidarity from Poets on the Picket Line. There will be plenty of time for discussion, and our panellists may drop some rhymes as well.

There is now a lot more talking about mental health than there used to be. That is very welcome.

The overall theme of the event was Building an Autistic Community. It was well-attended, and after the four panellists had finished speaking, a lively question-and-answer session took place.
