Kendal Poetry Festival, Sunday 21 February 2021, 8-9pm
Main Reading with Vahni Capildeo and Mark Waldron
Vahni Capildeo’s seven books and five pamphlets extend from prose poetry into immersive theatre. Capildeo’s work is intimate yet full of humour, far-ranging and far-reaching and always fearless in its challenge to the boundaries of poetry and what it can do.
Mark Waldron’s work is deliciously bold and wickedly funny, with strands of whimsy, surrealism and the grotesque running through his work. He will be reading from his latest collection Sweet, like Rinky-Dink.
