Update on the special issue

The Festival Programme is now pretty much in a complete state, with just a few things to close down. There’s a Facebook page, here and the list of poets taking part seems now to be fixed. There’s quite a variety on offer, from workshops on writing from history, prose poems and newsreels, through a discussion on Queer Poetry and a session of “after the watershed” poetry, to a Poetry Slam and Shakespeare’s sonnets set to modern music.

Poets who are now committed to read include the following, all of whom should feature in the Antiphon special issue: Bernard O’Donaghue, Julia Copus, Sinead Morrissey, Jean Sprackland, Paul Batchelor, Conor O’Callaghan, AB Jackson, Matt Clegg, River Wolton, Jim Caruth, Helen Mort, Peter Manson, Robert Crawford, Chris Jones, Gillian Clarke, Michael Symmons Roberts, Katharine Towers, Ian Duhig.

And that’s not the whole programme by any means. We don’t want to give it all away yet. There are over fifty national, international and local poets featured in the Festival.  When the full programme is released, we’ll let you know.
