Instituto Cervantes Manchester and Leeds Poetry Club, under the coordination of Professor Diana Cullell (University of Liverpool), is launching a new series of readings dedicated to “Spanish Poetry Awards”.

This club provides our students with the opportunity to explore prominent figures in contemporary Spanish poetry, such as Joan Margarit, Olvido García Valdés, Pilar Pallarés, or Luis García Montero.

In each session, participants will delve into the work of a poet through the reading of their poems, presented in both Spanish and English. Professor Cullell will enhance the experience with her commentary, creating a participatory space where all attendees will share their insights about the meaning of the poems.

The new session of our Poetry Club focuses on the poet Pilar Pallarés. She was awarded the Spanish National Poetry Prize in 2019, the O Facho Poetry Prize in 1979, and the Poetry Prize of the Association of Writers in Galician Language in 2012. She is the author of poetry collections such as Entre Lusco e Fusco,Livro das devoracións, and Leopardo son o Tempo fósil.

Join us to explore and share the richness of Spanish poetry in this fascinating literary journey!
