Poetry and Cultures of Feedback

Sunday, 21 May 2017


I'm very happy to be contributing to the first issue of CORDA, a new biannual magazine published in London and exploring communal experience of connections in a time of new borders. Started in direct response to the Brexit vote, and edited by Livia Franchini with art direction by Sean P Haughton, CORDA publishes both writing and visual material.

My contribution has the title 'tanks rolled through our streets', and it is a borderless mashup of testimonies by young mother refugees to the US and 'below-the-line' commentary on the online article in which they were published.

Thanks to Livia Franchini for asking and for publishing this piece, and kudos to Livia and Sean for creating a space for writers & artists across Europe and elsewhere to "grieve/rage/celebrate friendship together in the wake of Brexit".

Full list of contributors to CORDA #1: Cecilia Zoe Grandi, Ginevra Shay, Craig Clark & Caterina Pinzauti, Laura Merizalde & Dizz Tate, Jade King, Flaminia Cavagnaro, Katy Cotterell, Aria Aber, Adriana Rodrigues, Serena Braida, Christodoulos Makris, Rebecca Tamás, Lauren Sedger, Alexander Townend & Emily Jane McCartan, Eley Williams, Sarah E. Pace, Maria Cecilia Tedemalm, Simon Barraclough, Joe Briggs, Cliodhna Walsh, Katrine Dybbroe Møller, SJ Fowler & Ariadne Radi Cor, Thomas Chadwick, Dan Negară, Eilidh Urquhart & Caterina Pinzauti, Sapphira Frankl-Slater, Efe Duyan, Livia Franchini & Efe Duyan, Thom Dinsdale, Alice Ash, Charlotte Heather, TM Leach.
