Electric Arc Furnace ecopoetry special edition

Electric Arc Furnace #4: ecopoetry special edition
Wednesday 6th September
Bank Street Arts, Sheffield

With ASLE-UKI & Land2, & part of the evening event programme for the conference, Cross Multi Inter Trans.

Electric Arc Furnace is a poetry readings series based in the centre of Sheffield, between the seven hills. This time, in a break with the usual two-poet format, we are uncontainably excited to welcome but THIRTEEN ecopoets speaking at the conference to Sheffield, to each read a five-minute sample of their work. Expect innovative (eco)poetries; encounters with nonhuman animals; the ground slanted; landscapes of avant-pastoral; embodied performance; radical field work; bugs, birds & apples; the green & the red.

For information about individual readers, check out the poets’ bios on the conference website:  https://asleukiland2017.com/
