EMERGENCY POETRY SUMMIT | 5th MAY | 10-5pm | NORTHERN STAGE

After a two-year hiatus, the Newcastle Poetry Festival is back! Join the Poetry Book Society and NCLA on the 5th May for an Emergency Poetry Summit at Northern Stage. We’re reuniting the poetry community to review poetry's new normal, celebrate resilience and make the case for hope. Join us for an inspiring day of readings and reflections on covid to climate change, from leading poets Imtiaz Dharker, Yomi Sode, Khairani Barokka, Romalyn Ante, Hannah Hodgson, Harry Josephine Giles, Jake Morris-Campbell, Don Jenkins, Rowan McCabe, Linda France, Jason Allen Paisant, Polly Atkin, Sylvia Legris, Rishi Dastidar, Jo Clement and Naush Sabah. In this age of emergency, we look to the poets to light the way! The Emergency Poetry Summit in-person day ticket only costs £15 (£10 for students) to hear from 15 world-class poets. Book here.
