For the month of Maggio Letterario, Blyth is proud to have the award-winning poet, writer and educator, Anthony Anaxagorou, for a day of workshops with students and an evening performance of his original works.

Anthony Anaxagorou is a British born Cypriot, whose poetry and fiction have appeared on BBC Newsnight, BBC Radio 4 and Radio 6 Music, ITV, Vice UK, Channel 4 and Sky Arts. He has guest lectured at several universities including; Oxford, Lancaster, Loughborough, Sheffield and Leeds on poetry in education and identity politics.

In 2016 he was shortlisted for the Hospital Club’s H-100 award for most influential people in writing and publishing. In 2012 he founded Out-Spoken, a poetry and live music night, and Out-Spoken Press, an independent publisher of poetry and critical writing that aims to challenge the lack of diversity in British publishing.

The day’s event will be free and open to the public. We would like to invite creative middle school and high school students with a passion for English.

The poetry performance will be from 6 pm onwards and will include refreshments.
