No Poet is an Island: Usha Kishore and the Isle of Man Poetry Society

As part of Manx Litfest Usha Kishore and the Isle of Man Poetry Society will be at the library on Sunday 2nd October from 1.30pm-3.00pm.


Organised by Isle of Man poet Usha Kishore, and featuring members of the IOM Poetry Society. Usha says: ‘Literary poetry in the Isle of Man is flourishing, despite our remote location. While speaking of poetry emanating from a small island off the north-west coast of England, one is often prone to the feeling of writing from the periphery. On the contrary, the island’s poets have been successful in their endeavour of promoting Manx poetry in the UK and internationally, have won awards and prizes in the UK and Ireland, and have been featured in international projects. The theme of “No Poet is an Island” defines the Manx poets’ determination to be heard within and without the island and highlights their successes further afield.’
