Yes But Are We Enemies


I'm delighted to announce details of Yes But Are We Enemies, a major project & tour focusing on poetry in collaboration I'm curating in partnership with Steven Fowler:



Yes But Are We Enemies
English and Irish Poets Having Words

A groundbreaking exploration of contemporary writing in which 6 poets from Ireland and England tour brand new work produced collaboratively in cross-national partnerships. The tour visits five venues across Ireland and concludes with a show in London, with each event featuring a unique combination of pairs.

This is a project about the creation of collaborative work, but also about the integration of differing poetic communities. Therefore each event will additionally feature specially-commissioned collaborations between writers from the region.

Core poets:
from Ireland: Ailbhe Darcy, Billy Ramsell, Christodoulos Makris
from England: Patrick Coyle, Sam Riviere, SJ Fowler


Admission to all events is free
