Southbank Centre wants applications for New Poets Collective
London’s Southbank Centre is looking for up to 15 poets to be part of its New Poets Collective. It says it wants to “seek out the world’s most exciting artists, from household names to fresh new talent, and give them space to showcase their best work”.
The New Poets Collective programme will be centred around the National Poetry Library. It will help a group of up to 15 poets hone their skills and expand their knowledge and confidence. Lead tutors Vanessa Kisuule, pictured, and Will Harris, and special guest poets will lead monthly sessions for the group. The sessions are designed to help the group’s members develop as versatile creative artists with skills and confidence across a range of genres, from page poetry to performative poetry and spoken word.
