This year the Northern Poetry Symposium is going global with a series of inspiring sessions blending panel discussions and performances from world-class poets on the 9th and 10th May. We’re journeying around the world with leading poets from Newcastle, Switzerland, the US, Canada, Ukraine, Lebanon, Iran and Bhutan, giving unique insights into their craft and discussing vital issues around In/Out: Place poetry, inclusivity and belonging. Come join our global poetry community and find your PLACE in poetry.

We are grateful to the Newcastle University Humanities Research Institute for supporting the Northern Poetry Symposium.
