Day 5: Time for something a little bit different…

By December 5, 2011News

Iqbal TamimiWhen one thinks of journeys in Palestine, a number of things may come to mind – checkpoints and extended delays, restriction of movement; or maybe, a longing for the journey home, for the right to return.  Or maybe not… Tonight Bristol Palestine Film Festival is attempting to bring together some of the most well-known and prestigious Bristol-based poets, to explore the theme of journey.  The evening will showcase some of the best Palestinian poetry by award-winning, Bristol-based journalist and writer, Iqbal Tamimi.  Acclaimed poet and novelist Julie-ann Rowell will also be reading. They will be joined by Sue Boyle organizer of the regular Café Writing days and the Bath Poetry Café and John Terry whose collection Building Wings 2009, was described by Philip Roth as an exploration, in a craftsman’s company.  The event will feature a range of existing and specially commissioned poems, as each writer interprets the theme of journey from their own experiences.
