In this event Daljit reads his poetry, talks about his writing and shares his inspirations.

Daljit possesses one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary English poetry: through his work, he explores the idealism and reality of multicultural Britain with wit, intelligence and no small sense of mischief. With a political and often challenging edge, and always with a powerful play on language, his poems meditate on a wide range of subjects.

His award winning poetry has appeared in many publications including The New Yorker and the Times Literary Supplement, and his journalism in the Financial Times and The Guardian. The inaugural Poet-in-Residence for Radio 4 & 4 Extra, he presents the weekly Poetry Extra, and serves on the Council of the Royal Society of Literature, and teaches at Brunel University London.

Daljit will be joined by 4 guest poets: David Canning, Tim Cunningham, Rosie Sandler and Dorothy Turner.

This is a free event however booking is required.

This event is organised in partnership with Essex Cultural Diversity Project and supported by the Essex Poetry Festival
