A poetry performance dedicated to the sensual power of anticipated intimacy. Mildly erotic poetry, with its understated longing, sly allusions and downplayed passions can be more romantic, potent and downright sexier than full-blooded verse, more concerned with the emotional side of affairs of the heart than the brute mechanics of sex itself.
Our poets will read from and discuss their own work, as well as performing classics from writers such as lovelorn Roman Catullus, perhaps the greatest love poet of them all, to explore the joy, doubt, hilarity and innate humanity of sex and sexuality.
The event will be introduced by Emma Wright, editor of ‘The Emma Press Anthology of Mildly Erotic Verse’, with readings from poets Sophia Blackwell, Jo Brandon, Sudeep Sen, Victoria Gatehouse and Steve Nash. Why not bring a date?
Unfortunately, Mona Arshi will be unable to attend this event due to personal reasons.
