Corrupted Poetry is a state of mind. Our events are managed by a collective of writers, Nic Stringer, Michelle Penn and Fiona Larkin. We create readings and collaborations that bring together the very best writers of contemporary poetry and present their work alongside art and sound content to provoke debate about the poem's visual & sonic spaces.
'The most thoughtful poetry event'
Michelle Penn's debut pamphlet, Self-portrait as a diviner, failing, won the 2018 Paper Swans Prize. Her work has appeared in Magma, Butcher’s Dog, Popshot, B O D Y, Finished Creatures and other journals
Fiona Larkin’s debut pamphlet, A Dovetail of Breath, was published by Rack Press in 2020. She was highly commended in the Forward Prizes 2019, in the best single poem category fionalarkinpoetry.wordpress.com
Nic's poetry, art & reviews have appeared in anthologies, magazines and online, her first collection A day that you happen to know, published by Guillemot Press, was highly commended in the Forward Prizes 2018 and is available on this website. Nic's second collection will be published in 2021, also by Guillemot Press. Nic is a member of the sound collective Fractured Strings, an original soundtrack, In the half-light, is also available on this website (links and a full list of publications is on the Home page).

Temporary Spaces exhibited at the Poetry Society's Cafe in January and February 2020. The exhibition catalogue, edited by Nic Stringer & Astra Papachristodoulou is available from Pamenar Press (link on Home page).
Sadly we had to postpone the first event in our 2020 season, but you can still get a copy of the limited edition pamphlet for FAKE by emailing your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org and if you'd like to donate towards our costs the suggested donation is £4 to include postage. We are not-for-profit.
