Special Edition is a series of poetry events that take place at the NPL on the first Wednesday of every month. The series showcases different facets of the poetry scene and highlights the treasures of the library's collection. We are seeking proposals from a broad range of poets and poetry organisations.
Special Edition transforms the library into the backdrop for all sorts of poetry-related events, whether debates, Q&As, collaborative performances, or readings of live poetry. We particularly welcome proposals which draw on unusual strands in the NPL collection.
