Our featured poet for the month is Vincent Cellucci. He is a program maker and the TUS+ student partner network contact at the TU Delft Library. His books of poetry include: Absence Like Sun, _a ship on the line and An Easy Place / To Die. Vincent performed Diamonds in Dystopia, an interactive poetry web app, at SXSW in 2017. We are really excited to have him join us!
This is the second meetup of the Verse It! poetry club. We’ve chosen a theme this time: “Fear of the Unknown“. The poems should preferably pertain to the theme (not mandatory). Register here for the event on Feb 8th, 2021 at 19:00.
Verse It! is a monthly poetry meetup that will see poetry coming to life, through reading, music, art and any other forms of artistic expression. Through our events, Verse It! will bring young poetic voices and seasoned ones under the same roof to share their creations. We welcome cupfuls of expression ranging from joy, angst and love to envy, rebellion and more.
Poetry knows no description nor does it know any identity. As a result, the element of poetry, although sedate and unassuming on the exterior, is a brimming volcano of passion and a wild tsunami of colours and energy on the inside. It is this colourful energy that Verse It! is tapping into.
Shed your shackles and be part of the experience every month on the second Monday of the month.
