Drawing together strands of text art, vispo, performance writing and conceptual poetry, language art anthology The Dark Would defies the boundaries between text and art.

In this panel discussion, celebrated poets Caroline Bergvall and Marton Koppany join Philip Davenport, Editor of The Dark Would, to discuss the way our language changes as we grow older and more experienced.

This event is also part of the Text Festival Weekend Ticket
