“A truly unique evening of poetry will see the culmination of a rare and powerful collaboration between four of the most exciting new poetic talents emerging from the nation of Iceland and four of the UK’s most lauded and iconoclastic writers. The event will present some of the most intricate and daring sound / sculptural / visual and free verse poetry in Europe, the fruit of a project instigated by the 3am magazine Maintenant interview series.”
