Five O’Clock Verses
Our final Five O’Clock Verses session brings together two poets from London and Galicia. Jay Bernard is a writer, filmmaker and artist whose body of work is interdisciplinary, critical, queer and rooted deeply in the archives. Winner of the 2018 Ted Hughes Award and shortlisted for both the T.S. Eliot Award and the Costa Poetry Prize, they are a powerful and rising voice in the arts community. Yolanda Castaño is a writer, editor and curator whose collections have been translated into more than 35 languages. An activist as well as an award-winning poet, Yolanda’s work across the artistic community has focused on breaking down expectations and the boundaries they create, and casting doubts around what we consider as certainties.
Supported by the John Rutherford Centre for Galician Studies (University of Oxford) and the Xunta de Galicia
