KPF22 Main Reading – Joelle Taylor/Imtiaz Dharkar – Online

Literature |

7.30pm – 9.30pm | Tickets £5 | Online via Zoom

Join us for the opening of the festival with an electric night of poetry from Joelle Taylor and Imtiaz Dharkar. Joelle Taylor won the TS Eliot Prize in 2022 for C+nto, a lyrical, expansive, genre-bending dive into butch counter-culture. Over her six acclaimed collections, Imtiaz Dharkar’s work has ranged between love and loss, home and exile and public and private history. Both poets are celebrated for their performances – this will be a night to remember!
