Poetry and Revolution

Many of the performances and papers from the Poetry and Revolution conference, held at Birkbeck in May, are now available for download here, both in audio and text versions. Participants included Allen Fisher, Mark Nowak, Zoë Skoulding, Joan Retallack, Maria Damon, Peter Jaeger, David Buuck, and Keston Sutherland, whose high-energy paper I had the challenging task of following on from with my own piece on Vanessa Place, Sean Bonney, and “Revolution’s Echo.”

    Hey Jacob //// I really like yr paper, thanks for writing it. Shame didn’t get to chat more at the conference, but I was getting pretty crazed.

      Sean, thanks for your comment. I’m glad you liked the paper. I wasn’t sure how you would feel about being compared to Vanessa Place. I had a wonderful time at the conference––a real credit to the amazing work done by you and the other organizers. I also enjoyed your excellent paper. I was only sorry that I missed the readings on Friday and Saturday evening. I heard they were terrific.
