WHO WE ARE

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.
