Poetry Bites at the MAC, Birmingham: Thursday 5th July

Poetry Bites at the MAC

MAC, Birmingham
Thursday 5th July
Hosted by Jacqui Rowe.

Poetry Bites is an open mic and poetry night which offers floor spots where you can share your own poetry with an appreciative audience together with readings by leading poets. July’s Poetry Bites guest is Mario Petrucci, who has been called “as close as we have to a 21st century renaissance man.” A major exponent of public art, authentic performance and hybrid forms, particularly science in poetry, Mario was the first poet in residence at the Imperial War Museum and with BBC Radio 3. Heavy Water, his award-winning poem about Chernobyl, was made into a film by Seventh Art. His new collection, Flowers of Sulphur, is published in July by Enitharmon.

If you would like to read or perform your own work, please arrive early to book a floor spot.

See for details of how to book and find the venue.
