KPF22 Main Reading – Jane Burn and Victoria Adukwei Bulley – Online

Literature |

2.30pm – 4.30pm | Tickets £5 | Online via Zoom

Jane Burn is a Pushcart/Forward Prize-nominated, multi-award-winning, widely anthologised poet and author. She will be reading from her latest collection, Be Feared (Nine Arches Press, 2021) – a rebellious, bloody, spell-binding expression of what it means to be a working-class, neuro-divergent woman. Victoria Adukwei Bulley will be reading from her long-awaited debut collection Quiet (Faber, 2022) – a book already heralded as a ‘seismic event’ (Kayo Chingonyi) in its exploration of black interiority, intimacy and selfhood.
