CamaradefestOn Saturday 26 October I’ll be back in London at the Rich Mix Arts Centre for CamaradeFest, an all-day poetry collaboration extravaganza. Hope you can join us!

The Camarade poetry festival is a unique and unforgettable one day explosion of dynamic collaboration in contemporary avant garde and literary poetics. 100 poets align in 50 pairs, each writing an original collaborative work, written specifically for the festival and premiered on the day. The 5th Camarade event, and the crescendo of the Enemies project’s first year, this ambitious exploration of the possibilities of collaboration in poetry will evidence the true width and depth of poetry that is happening now.
