Sheffield Poetry International

Sheffield Poetry International is a reading series featuring leading poets from Ireland, North America, Australia and Portugal who are partnered by locally-based writers. It offers a unique opportunity for Yorkshire audiences to hear and meet poets of international reputation whose readings in England are usually restricted to London and Cambridge. The series is organised by Sheffield poets David Kennedy, Geraldine Monk and Alan Halsey and supported by Arts Council England, Yorkshire.
