Poems from a Dangerous Year


And what a year (and a bit) it has been! Push the Boat Out seeks to celebrate and interrogate the role that poetry plays in helping us reflect on, challenge, and make sense of the world around us. In Poems from a Dangerous Year, some of our finest poets will do just that, selecting and presenting work that considers the past tumultuous 18 months. Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe, Roseanne Watt, Nick Makoha and Caroline Bird will be joined by Jamaican poet laureate Lorna Goodison (livestreamed) to guide us through poetry which has shaped and illuminated their dangerous year. With music specially commissioned for the Edwin Morgan Centenary from Esther Swift, join us for the very first Opening Night of the very first Push the Boat Out: Edinburgh's International Poetry Festival.
