We are overjoyed to announce that Don Share, poet and editor of Poetry magazine, is coming to CAMPUS this December for a Live Q&A.
No wacky catchy byline needed – it’s Don Share, everyone. Don Share!
Don will be in discussion with Kathryn Maris, our Digital Poet in Residence, and they’ll be variously discussing: the differences between US and UK poetry (and the recent ‘British invasion’ edition of Poetry), Don’s recent jazz-backed performance of Squandermania for the Swindon Poetry Festival, polymath tendencies, what to look for in a poem and how to ‘make it new’.
As with all our Live Q&A’s, Don will also be here to answer any questions you might have, which must be submitted in advance of the event. If you’d like to ask Don a question, please post it below in the comments section.
Note: we’re expecting demand for this Live Q&A to be very high, so priority will be given to those who have asked a question.
Live Q&A with Don Share – Poetry Here & There
When? – Monday 8 December, 2pm GMT
Where? – CAMPUS
OPEN TO ALL
