The Deaf Issue, Magma 69 published fantastic poems responding to the theme of D/deafness and many of them stood out for their visual and formal qualities. A selection of the most interesting and innovative visually are being exhibited at the Torriano Meeting House, 99 Torriano Avenue, Kentish Town, London NW5 2RX. You can see them throughout February and March and attend some great poetry readings
and by faces forgotten.
Consider how sound shapes our relationship with one another and the wider world as we launch Magma 69, The Deaf Issue, a magazine that includes poems by d/Deaf poets exploring deafness, how we hear and what we are deaf to.
Following on from the launch, poets Ksenia Balabina, Alison Smith and Donna Williams join a panel discussion with editors Lisa Kelly and Raymond Antrobus about BSL poetry, text, image and metaphor of d/Deaf poetics and the challenges of translation.
Join us for an evening of poetry where visual and oral aesthetics connect, clash and commune.
