Search for young polylingual poets to help develop skills
The deadline has been extended until midnight Monday 9 August to recruit eight young mixed-heritage people with an interest in polylingual poetry to develop their practice as poets or spoken word performers.
Undertow: Polylingual Poets Please is headed by Mexican-British poet and translator Juana Adcock. The programme will help eight young mixed heritage poets, aged 16-26, with a series of workshops and surgeries.
