Top poets thrive on poetic forms

16 Poets have been mesmerised by metre and rallied by rhyme, we’ve been vying with villanelles and screaming over sonnets. For the last year we have been studying with the queen of poetic forms, Mimi Khalvati, at The Poetry School’s Versification class. Come and hear the results, as well as a set by Mimi and the World Premiere of Freedom Fighters, a verse drama by Natalie Maguire.

Presented by Gale Burns and Jill Abram with Cath Drake, Jan Heritage, Judith Cair, Susannah Hart, Harry Man, Matt Bryden, Helen Nicholson, Kathy Pimlott, Melanie Mauthner, Mona Arshi, Pam Johnson, Natalie Maguire, Vishvantara and Mimi Khalvati.
