Brighton launch of Filigree

Date: Saturday 16 March 2019
Time: 7-9pm
Venue: The Writers' Place, 9 Jew Street, Brighton BN1 1UT

We are inviting you to a unique opportunity to hear contributors to Filigree, Peepal Tree Press’ second anthology of contemporary Black British poetry here in the South East, at New Writing South. Filigree follows in the footsteps of previous successful anthologies: RED (poetry) and Closure(short stories).

Poet Hannah Lowe says of Filigree “what struck me most is the varied and accomplished craft of these writers – the link with poetics and traditions past, but always with an eye to renewal and invention.” Filigree’s inclusion of fresh voices from a younger generation of Black British poets illustrates Inscribe’s commitment to producing groundbreaking anthologies. Included are young Poet Laureate’s of London, poets from the Octavia collective, Barbican Young Poets and The Complete Works as well as a wealth of other recognisable names.

This event will be a treat, a chance to meet some the poets, and hear their excellent contributions to the publication. Our line up will be headed by local contributor Akila Richards.

The book will be available for buying and signing!

We look forward to seeing at the Writers Place! Register soon as places are limited. 

Please contact Akila on akilalive@gmail.com for any queries.

Filigree is published by Inscribe, an imprint of Peepal Tree Press, edited by Nii Parkes (Inscribe Series Editor - Kadija Sesay)
