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.
