A Salt Wind: Cross Currents in Polish and British Poetry

Join us on Tuesday 19 September to celebrate the publication online of a new set of poetry commissions to celebrate literary connections between the UK and Poland.

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 online, with images and artwork 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.
