Goldsmiths Writers' Centre presents...Cross-cultural poetics, modernity and myth
Nick Makoha and Kirun Kaper are both poets who explore boundaries of culture and identity. Nick, a Goldsmiths alumni, was shortlisted for the 2017 Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection for his debut Kingdom of Gravity, published by Peepal Tree Press. He won the 2015 Brunel International African Poetry prize. His work is framed between the contrary pulls of attachment and ﬂight, exile and longing; he will be in conversation with Kirun Kapur, joining us from Boston where she teaches at Amherst College. She was the winner of the Arts & Letters Rumi Prize in Poetry and the Antivenom Poetry Award for her first book, Visiting Indira Gandhi’s Palmist (Elixir Press, 2015). Her second book, Women in the Waiting Room, was a finalist for the National Poetry Series and is published by Black Lawrence Press. She was recently named an “Asian-American poet to watch” by NBC news. Join us for an evening of wide-ranging discussion and powerful readings.
