A Salt Wind: Cross-Currents in Polish and British Poetry

Eight poets living in Poland and the UK, including Alice Oswald, Jacek Dehnel, Ruth Padel and Vahni Capildeo, were commissioned to reflect on the cross-currents between the two poetic cultures for Modern Poetry in Translation. The resulting poems and prose pieces will be presented on-line on a fascinating new blog, with images and illustrations by Elle French and Jessie Russell Donn, graduates of the Royal College of Art. Join us to launch this marvellous new British-Polish poetry resource, with readings from Jacek Dehnel, Krystyna Dabrowska, George Szirtes, Ruth Padel and David Harsent and begin a conversation about the mutual influences between our two literary cultures.

Project initiated by Julith Jedamus, organised by Modern Poetry in Translation in partnership with The British Council, The Polish Cultural Institute in London, and Ognisko Polskie - The Polish Hearth, and in media partnership with CultureTrip.
