Home on the Move – Poetry Salon 4 October 2019

Launch of the new anthology, Home on the Move: Two Poems go on a Journey.

Featuring Jim Dening, Margaret Adkins, Jacqui Rowe, Home on the Move explores notions of ‘home’ that are challenged and reshaped by unprecedented migration. The anthology interrogates ideas of home, belonging and language from poetic perspectives.

The creative responses are the results of a journey undertaken by two poems about ‘home’: Deryn Rees-Jones’ poem travelled from the UK via France to Spain and back whilst Polish poet Rafa? Gawin’s travelled to the UK via Romania and back to Poland.

The poems and their literary and artistic translations featured at Ledbury Poetry Festival in 2018 and were translated into new poetry in workshops.
