Poet needed on theme of "the good immigrant"

The Poetry Cafe Eastbourne is planning a performance event in Eastbourne for World Poetry Day on 21st March.

We are looking for 3 poets who have an immigrant background to do a 20 minute set each relating to the theme of "The Good Immigrant" . They would each headline a session (3 sessions in all) which would also include 3x 5 minute slots for open micers to perform their poems on the wider theme of migration ("The Human Flow"). These slots could be pre-booked.

We would be willing to pay the expenses of the three main poets plus a modest appearance fee.

We have chosen this theme as it is such a big issue world wide, initially prompted by my reading of the book entitled "The Good Immigrant" contributed to by many well know writers from an immigrant background and by viewing the film by Ai Weiwei entitled "The Human Flow"

If recommending yourself please provide samples of your poetry and performance. If you are recommending someone else, please give your reasons for doing so.
