About me

Location United Kingdom
Introduction POETS ON FIRE is not about incinerating poets - much as we might secretly hope for that during some poetry readings - but a place to find news and discussion about poetry in performance across the UK. It's also intended to promote the idea that presenting your poetry to an audience is not simply a case of standing up and reading in a monotone from behind a book. Performing your work should be about bringing poetry to life, giving it a new and dynamic existence beyond the page; it's a dialogue between poet and audience, an exciting act of collaboration. That is true of all poetry, whether it's labelled performance, stand-up, mainstream, experimental or what have you. To tell me about a forthcoming poetry event, click 'View My Complete Profile' and email me the details. Short articles on live poetry, compressed photos below 120KB or gig reviews are also welcome - though NO ATTACHMENTS, please, without agreement. Please note, details of these events are subject to change. Poets On Fire cannot accept responsibility for any errors.
