With poets visiting from Switzerland and based in the UK, this event brought ‘Typoetry: Rethink-Rebuild’ to an inspiring close. This event was part of Newham Word Festival (4-17 July 2022).
A special literary reading and performance event with poets featured in the ‘Typoetry: Rethink-Rebuild’ project to close its remarkable run in Newham.
