The Weather Inside and Out

Conceived and hosted by our Writer-in-Residence, poet Lydia Kennaway, this is the fourth instalment of ‘Footloose’, a monthly online event using the subject of walking as a way to explore our inner landscapes. Lydia will read poems from her pamphlet, A History of Walking, and will talk to poets and other writers about words and walking. In May, her guest is Malika Booker, founder of the writer’s collective, ‘Malika’s Kitchen’, and – among many other things – winner of the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem 2020. Malika and Lydia will be walking through hurricanes together, and across continents. Join them online on May 30th.

Discover more about Malika Booker from her website.

Please pay what you can afford – we’ve set the bar low at €1 euro – revenues will go towards remunerating the poets. We are running an experiment to boost promotion for this event, so if you wish, you can log in to Eventbrite and and book a free ticket there, however, you won’t benefit from joining our 3k+ community of walking artists, performers and writers unless you register here.

Order a copy of “A History of Walking” from our bookshelf.
