Our recent Persian Poets evening was a real crowd pleaser, as these comments from audience members show:
“Sad that we couldn’t spend longer and hear them again”
“The whole evening was just magical. I would gladly sit through the same event again and again!”
Well now you can! Our short film shows acclaimed Persian poets Shakila Azizzada, Azita Ghahreman and Reza Mohammadi, together with their translators, the contemporary English poets Mimi Khalvati, Maura Dooley and Nick Laird.
Thanks to our friends at the Poetry Translation Centre for their help with this event.
