Reading John Wieners


I long had two copies of John Wieners' work at home but always struggled with them. This event was intended to develop a way to read poetry together, where prior knowledge and experience was uneven in the room.

The first part intended to provide space for contextualisations and reflections; the second part was a collective reading of some of the poems, with discussion; with time at the end to reflect on the possibility of doing something with Mayday Radio and poetry.

If you are interested to develop something along these lines in the future, do get in touch
