WHO WE ARE

Corrupted Poetry is a state of mind.  Our events are managed by a collective of writers, Nic Stringer, Michelle Penn 

& Fiona Larkin. We create readings & collaborations that bring together the best writers of contemporary  poetry 

and present their work alongside artistic & sound content to provoke debate about the poem's visual & sonic spaces.


'The most thoughtful poetry event'
