CAESURA 32

Also super excited to be performing at CAESURA 32 at Summerhall tomorrow night.  It was meant to be a JL Williams performance with a little OPUL but it seems to have evolved, to my delight, into a much more integrated set.  Anyway, much music and poetry will be had by all.  Also performing will be Emilia Weber, Tom Betteridge and Legion of Swine.  

Hope to see you there!  All details here.

Books by JL Williams include Condition of Fire (Shearsman, 2011), Locust and Marlin (Shearsman, 2014), House of the Tragic Poet (If A Leaf Falls Press, 2016), After Economy (Shearsman, 2017) and Origin (Shearsman, 2022). Published widely in journals, her poetry has been translated into numerous languages. She has read at international literature festivals and venues in the UK, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Turkey, Cyprus, Canada, Hungary, Romania, Montenegro and the US. She wrote the libretto for the opera Snow which debuted in London in 2017, was awarded a bursary to develop a new opera with composer Samantha Fernando at the Royal Opera House and was a librettist for the award-winning 2020 covid-response Episodes project by The Opera Story. Williams curates writing events and creates workshops and professional development activities for poets. She is hopeful about the simple and mysterious power of poetry that allows us to know ourselves, each other and the world more deeply.
