In this panel, Lines and Shapes, taken from 2018’s Poetry on the Move festival, four poets discuss the importance of form in and for poetry. How does a consideration of form affect composition? Is form a conservative call to tradition, or a rediscovery that allows poets to explore new ways of working?
We’ll hear this question addressed by in turn, Lisa Gorton, Owen Bullock, Lisa Brockwell and Cassandra Atherton. Before opening up to a group discussion moderated by the host of the panel, Paul Munden.
