In this evening of readings, acclaimed poets from Korea and Australia will share their work and experiences, inspired by their immersion in new cultures through the Melbourne-Seoul poetry exchange.
The Melbourne-Seoul Intercultural exchange is forging deep relationships between Korean and Australian universities as well as nurturing significant cross-cultural understanding within and across diverse writing communities.
For this special event Korean poets So Yeon Kim, Hyangra Kim, Bo Seon Shim and translator Ben Jackson will read alongside Australian and US poets Jessica Wilkinson, Cassandra Atherton, Bonny Cassidy, Kent MacCarter and Lisa Gorton.
The exchange project is part of RMIT’s Writers Immersion and Cultural Exchange (WrICE) program, a research program of residencies, workshops and events.
Melbourne-Seoul is supported by the Australia-Korea Foundation.
