London Buddhist Centre
Each poet will be asked to provide two or three poems from the canon that have influenced their poetry; these poems will be read at the beginning of the evening. There will be a short interview with the poet, asking them about their creative life and work with emphasis on their influences, and poets they admire. This will be followed by a poetry reading and questions and answers from the floor. The evening will be preceded by a short led meditation in order to provide the best listening conditions externally and internally.
Poetry East takes place in one of the shrine rooms of the London Buddhist Centre, so please wear comfortable clothing suitable for sitting on cushions on the floor. You will also be asked to remove your shoes. Tea and biscuits will be provided.
