Poetry: Five Bodies

Inspired by moments of unknowingness, invention and imagination, Five Bodies brings together some of the most outstanding British and international poets to share experiences of contemporary poetry.

The series welcomes unexpected ideas, experimental drifts and multiple voices following a long-standing tradition in poetry writing that melds perceiving, sensing, feeling and knowing as knowledge-making practices. Five Bodies asks how language invites communion with the sensorial, social, and political bodies and considers ways of relating to one another in the digital space.
