Poetry In Resistance

It was great to take part in SFTUK’s Renaissance night last month. The theme was to highlight writers and writings from Tibet. I introduced Woeser and read a poem written for her by Jamyang Kyi.

The full write up of the night is on SFTUK’s blog:

This is my bit of the evening below but I recommend watching the whole thing, especially Leah’s superb reading of “A Vow” by Woeser.
