Free the (new) Word

To Penguin last night, where 26 hosted International PEN's Caroline McCormick and poet Yang Lian, for an informal reading and an early discussion about next year's Free The Word festival.

Before reading one of his poems, Lian mentioned that he'd coined a new word: "'darknesses', because why should there only be one darkness?" That's brilliant, non?

And if you want to get involved in next year's festival, slated for 16-19 April, do drop me a line.
