Poetry Parnassus and raining poems!

Those of you in and around London shouldn't miss this week's MASSIVE festivities at Poetry Parnassus at the Southbank Centre.

Poets from nearly every Olympic country, huge names, workshops, debates, readings galore and a rain of thousands of bilingual poems are just some of the amazing events set up to celebrate a year of international coming together in London.

Already I've met poets from the Netherlands, Italy, Chile, Hong Kong, South Africa, you name it!

I'll be reading at Maintenant's celebration of the experimental and avant-garde, organised by the ever-energetic mass-interviewer S.J. Fowler, on Saturday at 7pm, which should be awesome.

There are events going on throughout the week until 1 July. Come on down and experience something new - it promises to be something very special indeed. There really will be something for everybody, and I know there are many readers I may never get the chance to see again.
