Burn After Reading is back, again….
After a brief hiatus Burn After Reading is back for October! Here’s the info….
Burn After Reading is a new poetry community established by Jacob Sam-La Rose. We write, we read, we perform, we publish – as widely as possible. We celebrate a diverse range of poetics from ‘spoken word’ to ‘page’ and points in between. We celebrate the importance of understanding craft and of community.
On the 16th of October the Gallery Cafe, Bethnal Green, will play host to Burn After Reading; a showcase of the wide range of talent B.A.R has to offer. Members of the Burn After Reading collective will be performing alongside feature poets showing London exactly wh at the next generation of writers has to offer.
