New poetry from the writer's debut collection Platinum Blonde
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 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 The Rialto, Magma, Butcher’s Dog, B O D Y and other journals. michellepennwriter.com
