September 28th is National Poetry Day 2017. Listen to Jess and Lucinda dive into poetry which explores this year’s theme, Freedom, from the freedom of a lunch hour in Japan, to that of using two languages within one poem. We also hear from poets Marchant Barron, Beth Calverley and Rachel McCrum, whose work offer widely different takes on what it means to seek freedom. If you’ve been meaning to get back to reading some poetry, this is the episode for you.

Hosted by Jessica Johannesson Gaitán.  Music: ‘The Napier Ball’ by The Bookshop Band.
