Virtual event via Zoom

The Bristol Poetry Institute and Indisciplinary Poetics Research Cluster are delighted to announce this conversation with Sarah Tremlett (co-director of Liberated Words) and Rebecca Kosick (co-director of the Bristol Poetry Institute). The duo will discuss Sarah’s forthcoming book, The Poetics of Poetry Film: Film Poetry, Videopoetry, Lyric Voice, Reflection. Commissioned by Intellect Books and The University of Chicago Press, The Poetics of Poetry Film is the first book of its kind. With encyclopedic content, it establishes historical context, classifies the different types of poetry film, and sheds light on the fast-growing genre. Whilst Sarah Tremlett’s thinking develops around subjects such as time, lyric voice, subjectivity, the remediation of the page poem, and audio-visual philosophical practice, the book is multi-voiced, including first-hand accounts from numerous poetry filmmakers worldwide. A ground-breaking industry bible for students, academics, poetry film-makers and anyone interested in poetry, digital media, filmmaking, art and creative writing.

This event is free and open to all. For more information and to reserve your ticket, visit our Eventbrite page.
