Word up: poetry tonight and tomorrow at Sounds New

May 7, 2013

In an exciting addition to this year’s Sounds New festival, tonight and tomorrow night features Forces, a fusion of words, music and the ‘Universe of Sound’ installation at Augustine Hall.

The synergy between poetry and music was a feature of the festival last year, and we’re delighted that poetry is returning once more.

Tonight involves Natalie Bradbeer and Kate Peddie from the University of Kent and George Temple of Splinter magazine; Wednesday night features Patricia Debney, author of the collections How to be a Dragonfly and Littoral and Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Kent, and Dorothy Lehane, also a member of the Creative Writing team at Kent and Canterbury Poet of the Year in 2009.

The events start at 6.30pm both tonight and tomorrow.

Sounds New poetry is supported by the University of Kent.
