Beyond Imitation – Corrupted Poetry at the Southbank Centre – 4th December


What is poetry’s relationship with art? Find out at this discussion featuring readings by guest poets.

A book of poetry is visual art, a gallery of voices, not merely descriptor or commentator. National Poetry Library and Corrupted Poetry bring you Beyond Imitation to examine poetry’s relationship with art.

Corrupted Poetry’s ‘gallery of voices’ includes guest speakers and poets Tamar Yoseloff, Claire Collison, Abegail Morley and Kathryn Maris, who read their work.


They explore themes such as the visual landscape of the poem, how the poet brings the artist to life, the daily practice of the artist-poet and what ekphrastic poetry does that other forms do not.

“Corrupted Poetry is a state of mind”. Corrupted Poetry Events is managed by a collective of like-minded writers – Nic Stringer, Michelle Penn and Fiona Larkin who create readings and collaborations that focus on the best writers of contemporary and experimental poetry and present their work in a way that provokes debate about the poem’s visual and sonic spaces.
