Following the two-day academic conference, β€˜All Borders Blur: Mapping Intersections and Genre-Crossings in UK Spoken-Word Poetries since 1965’ at Queen Mary University of London in partnership with the University of Vienna (11-12 November 2023), Poetry Off the Page is pleased to announce the launch of a β€˜Call for Submissions’ for a special collection of articles on ‘Poetry off the Page: Intersecting Practices and Traditions in British Poetry Performance“. The collection will be published by the open access, peer-reviewed, Open Library of the Humanities Journal. Under the editorship of Prof. Andrea Brady (Queen Mary London), Prof. Peter Howarth (Queen Mary London) and Dr. Helen Thomas (University of Vienna), this special collection focuses upon the ways in which spoken word practices have intersected with, crossed genres and transformed established forms of British performance practice and traditions. Here you can find the Call for Submissions.
