Poetry School co-founder, Pascale Petit, will be online this Friday (22 Nov) to discuss the topic of ‘Transforming Trauma into Poetry’. And we need your questions!
Pascale is particularly interested to hear questions about her collections The Zoo Father and What the Water Gave Me: Poems after Frida Kahlo, and her upcoming book Fauverie (due Autumn 2014), which is a follow-up to The Zoo Father.
This CAMPUS Live Q&A will be chaired by our Digital-Poet-in-Residence, Claire Trévien, who will be initiating the conversation and getting things off to a flying start. Places are limited, so if you’d like to participate in this live Q&A with Pascale and Claire, and/or submit a question, please email [email protected]. The chat starts promptly at 1pm GMT.
Pascale Petit trained at the Royal College of Art and spent the first part of her life as a visual artist before deciding to concentrate on poetry. Since then she has published five collections, three of which were shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize. She is widely travelled, including in Mexico, the Venezuelan Amazon, China and Nepal. She has worked as editor for Poetry London, and was the Royal Literary Fellow at Middlesex 2007–9. She currently tutors for Arvon, Ty Newydd, Chateau Ventenac, Tate Modern, and – of course – The Poetry School.
If you’d just like to propose a question and can’t participate in the live chat itself, email [email protected]. We will do our best to fit your query in.
The transcript from this live Q&A will be eventually published on this blog.
