About this Event

We were delighted to speak online with Jenny Mitchell last year to celebrate the Aryamati Poetry Prize 2021, which she won for her poem, ‘Imagining a Forest Made of Freedom’. We are now even more thrilled to welcome her in person to read from her two prize-winning collections, Her Lost Language, and her second collection Map of a Plantation. As Artist in Association at Birkbeck, University of London, she is currently writing a series of poems that challenge and re-tell the story of Jane Eyre from the perspective of a free woman of colour in the 19th century. Jenny will read from both collections and discuss this latest project.

Her second collection Map of a Plantation is winner of the International Poetry Book Awards 2021. It was chosen as a ‘Literary Find’ in the Irish Independent and a Poetry Kit Book of the Month. She has won the Ware, Folklore and Aryamati Prizes and a Bread and Roses Award, as well as several other competitions. A debut collection, Her Lost Language, is joint winner of the Geoff Stevens Memorial Poetry Prize and was voted One of 44 Books of 2019 (Poetry Wales).


You can watch Jenny perform a reading of her award-winning poem 'Imagining a Forest Made of Freedom' here:
