Film of A Language Learned Abroad by Live Canon

Live Canon have filmed my poem ‘A language learned abroad, shortlisted for the Live Canon 2018 International Poetry Prize, being performed by Rebecca Hare.

It was wonderful to be at the event where the shortlisted poems were performed, and fascinating to hear an actor’s interpretation of my words. I’ve since edited a couple of lines out of the poem, but it’s nice to have it captured here in its original format.
