Magma 34 Launch Reading – 20th March

I’m very pleased to announce the launch reading for Magma 34, which I edited, at 8pm on 20th March at the Troubadour cafe near Earls Court in London.

Our headline poets, both featured in Magma 34, are Mimi Khalvati, founder of the Poetry School and a wonderful poet and teacher; and David Harsent, another very distinguished poet who recently won the Forward Prize for Best Collection of 2005, with his book Legion.

We will also have readings from many other poets featured in Magma 34, so it’s a great opportunity to hear a lot of very good poetry in one evening. The Troubadour is a very welcoming venue and invariably packed for Magma readings.

More details including directions at the Troubadour website. I hope to see you there on the 20th!

    Hopefully I shall be there. I believe that someone will be reading out translations of Japanese poetry, which should be interesting.

  2. They will indeed!
