First Drafts

Featuring Farhad Showghi, Simone Atangana Bekono, Lucy Beech

Of most poets, we experience their work as soon as it is finished and ready for publication. Every letter, comma, period, the sentence structure, the white, it stands like a house. What preceded this is the intimate and sometimes puzzling practice we call writing. In this program, poets will share candidly how they got from a first draft to .FINAL manuscript.
