Poet in the City: Collections in Verse launches in Leeds

Congratulations to Khadijah Ibrahiim, Malika Booker & Vahni Capildeo - all Inscribe and/or Peepal Tree Press poets!

Collections in VerseĀ is an exciting new national project, a partnership with Poet in the City and the British Library, using live poetry events and commisions to animate British Library exhibitions in five cities across the country.

Poet in the City launched the first leg of the project in Leeds in May. They've have commissioned three local poets - Khadijah Ibrahim, Malika Booker and Vahni Capildeo - to create new poetry in response to the British Library's latest exhibition Windrush: Songs in a Strange Land, drawing on the legacy of Windrush found in Leeds today.
