The best source of information on all forms of poetry events in England is the Poetry Library's newsletter, which can be registered for at their Events page, or you can consult their Poetry readings page. Other good listings of events are on The Other Room (mainly North of England-focused, but often with London events involving Northern poets), Vents (on Twitter — Poetry Events@hixeros), and also Shearsman. You will find also useful material on The Poetry Gig Guide on WriteOutLoud, which has a national coverage & a wide range of events.

Alexandra Harris and Rachel Lichtenstein: Testaments to Constancy and Change: In Weatherland, Alexandra Harris's subject is not the weather itself but the weather as it is daily recreated in the human imagination. She builds her remarkable story from small evocative details and catches the distinct voices of compelling individuals: Percy Shelley wants to become a cloud and John Ruskin wants to bottle one. The Thames estuary is one of the world's great deltas, providing passage in and out of London for millennia. Rachel Lichtenstein has travelled its length and breadth and in Estuary: Out from London to the Sea she presents many voices, offering a thoughtful and intimate portrait of the estuary's community and environment, how each has shaped and continues to shape the other. chaired by Anthony Sattin

Neurosis, Poetry, and the Present: A Workshop organized by Daniel Katz and Benjamin Noys: this event focuses on neurosis as a missing term, a form of 'blockage', of delay and prevarication, which could open-up the tensions of the present moment. In particular this also involves a re-consideration of poetry as a site that has witnessed a resurgence in political engagement and the thinking through of the damaged subjectivities of contemporary capitalism.

Violence, Cruelty, Avant-Garde: A One Day Conference: Keynote speaker: David Marriott; This conference will consider the historical association between violence and the avant-garde, looking in particular at the Modernist moment in Europe and its legacy. We are especially interested in how this historical association intersects with and is problematised by contemporary discourses around sexual, gendered and racialised violence and the deployment of narratives of terror for political purposes. We also invite participants to reflect on how the question of violence is framed in critical discussions of avant-garde texts.

organised by Tom Bamford, Byron Heffer, Dominic Walker at Fulton G15, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton BN1 9RH
Please send a 200–300 word abstract for a 20–minute paper with a short bio to violencecrueltyavantgarde@gmail.com by 31 January 2017. We welcome papers by researchers, academics, independent scholars, creative practitioners and activists. Booking details to follow

Email me to give me details of any readings or other events to put on this page. Email me when I've made a mistake also, please! Or post on Modernpoetry/org.uk Collective. But do please note that this listing is of poetry (& some related activities) occurring within the tradition or community of British Innovative Poetry, because that's the only poetry that seems worthwhile to me. I can be very inclusive, alarmingly so I am sure to some; but there are clear limits to what I will publicise. Look back on modernpoetry.org.uk or on Great Works if you are unsure.
