Making the connection: The reality of funding, networking and sustainability for Northern poets

In July 2018, poets Khadijah Ibrahiim, Testament, Kim Moore and Joe Hakim took part in a panel and Q&A discussion on the realities facing Northern poets in pursuing and sustaining a career locally and nationally, and explored useful pathways to networking and securing funding. Kate Fox delivered a guest presentation.

The event was hosted by Jerwood Arts as part of the Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowships public programme, and took place at Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds. The event was chaired by Joy Francis, Project Manager for the Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowships.
