Southbank Centre Interns Write

The Southbank Centre's flagship poetry festival, Poetry International, has wrapped up until 2012. The 2010 festival focussed on Palestinian poetry, with Mourid & Tamim Barghouti, Suheir Hammad, Nathalie Handal, Najwan Darwish, Remi Kanazi, Fady Joudah and Tashweesh all performing.

Also, working behind the scenes were two young interns from Ramallah, graduates of the Palestine Writing Workshop - one of PalFest's most succesful offshoot projects. Here are the links to Amani and Sawsan's blogs about the week.
