Join us for the launch of Diana Anphimiadi’s book Why I No Longer Write Poems. This is the first full-length selection in English from one of Georgia’s most acclaimed poets. Her poems range from the contemporary thrum of a train carriage to the ancient grievance of Greek myth, navigating the heartache and absurdity of love, and offering profound reflections on the limits and possibilities of language itself. The book has been collaboratively translated from the Georgian by translator Natalia Bukia-Peters and poet Jean Sprackland.

The event will be introduced by our newest staff member, Brian Sneeden. Brian has an extensive background in poetry translation publishing and will be teaching on the MA Publishing course at Manchester Metropolitan University.
