Knee Deep

15th October 2016, 19:15 to 20:15, Empty Shop HQ

A Durham Book Festival event.

Poet Jasmine Simms and theatre director Tess Denman-Cleaver curate readings by local young poets who are challenging the way poetry is performed, exploring what it means to write for performance rather than the printed page. Knee Deep presents poets from Durham University and young writers from County Durham performing poetry that explores the sea, and our relationship to it.

This event is a collaboration between Cuckoo Young Writers and Tender Buttons.
