Poets Under the Stars


As part of Words First Legacy with BBC 1Xtra and the Roundhouse we're attempting to convene as many poetry collectives and spoken word artists as possible in the heart of the country, Birmingham, to assemble 'under the stars' in an inflatable planetarium at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Join us for POETS UNDER THE STARS on Friday 15th July 2016, 6 - 8pm hosted by Birmingham's first and only young poetry collective Bellows.

You'll have a chance to talk about your work and share innovative practice, a chance to write and collaborate with new networks and an opportunity for sharing.

We're hosting the event 'pot luck' which means bring some biccies or something nice to share with the group.

We're launching a community hashtag #UKPoetry that we hope we can use to start linking up collaborations and conversations so please do tweet us with this.

We have limited travel bursaries to support and ensure no-one is deterred from attending this event. Please email for more info!
