We invite you to an afternoon and evening of poetry talks, workshops and readings exploring poetry from the First World War and how it affects us in the modern day.

As we approach the 100-year anniversary of the start of the First World War, the University of Birmingham in association with the Shakespeare Institute are hosting an event to explore some of the most powerful and revered poetry written during WWI.

Highlights include interactive workshops led by Jaq Bessell (Guildford School of Acting) and talks by experts in WWI literature and history from the University of Birmingham.
