Panel Discussion: Spoken Word in the UK
Spoken Word in the UK, edited by Dr Lucy English and Dr Jack McGowan, is a comprehensive and in-depth introduction to spoken word performance in the UK - its origins and development. Drawing together a wide range of scholars, critics and practitioners each chapter gives a new perspective on performance poetics. This is a crucial and ground-breaking book for those studying or teaching performance or poetry and opens up the discussion about widening participation in UK poetry.

In this event three of the authors will discuss their chapters and what the publication of this book means for contemporary poetry: Peter Bearder, Helen Johnson and Jacob Sam-La Rose. The event will be chaired by one of the book's editors, Dr Lucy English Professor of Creative Enterprise and The Spoken Word from Bath Spa University.
