Tamar Yoseloff | 'Beyond Imitation', National Poetry Library

What is poetry’s relationship with art? Find out at this discussion featuring readings by guest poets Tamar Yoseloff, Claire Collison, Abegail Morley and Kathryn Maris, who read their work. They explore themes such as the visual landscape of the poem, how the poet brings the artist to life, the daily practice of the artist-poet and what ekphrastic poetry does that other forms do not.  Tamar Yoseloff's new collection, The Black Place (Seren 2019), a dark and gorgeously multi-faceted work that eschews the sentimental, embraces alternatives and offers antidotes to cheery capitalist hype.  Tickets: £7/Concessions 25% reduction.
