Join British-American peot Robert Peake and Slovakian poet Eleni Cay for a night of poetry at the Torriano Meeting House in Kentish Town. Poets from the floor welcome.
Robert Peake is a British-American poet living in Hertfordshire. He created the Transatlantic Poetry on Air reading series, bringing poets together from around the world for live online readings and conversations. He also collaborates with other artists on poetryfilm, and his work has been widely screened in the US, UK, and Europe. He runs Poetry Surgeries for The Poetry Society in St. Albans. His collection The Knowledge is now available from Nine Arches Press.
Eleni Cay’s first collection, A butterfly's tremblings in the digital age (which is written in Slovakian), was published in 2013, after she won a national poetry competition in her native country Slovakia. Eleni’s English language poems were published in two pamphlets -Colours of the Swan and Autumn Dedications-, and featured in MK Calling 2013 & 2015, anthologies (e.g., Mother’s Milk); poetry magazines (e.g., Allegro) and as the ‘best poetry videos on the web’ (Moving Poems). Eleni is currently Poet in Residence at the Westbury Arts Centre.
