The Black Metic Experience: Nick Makoha and Kayo Chingonyi in Conversation

May 27, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Nick Makoha, CWL Creative Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Goldsmiths, University of London, is working to create an in-depth online digital archive of Black Metic Poets. The term ‘metic’, once applied to himself by T. S. Eliot translates as foreigners or resident aliens whose allegiances are split between their homeland and their new country.

Kayo Chingonyi is a writer, editor, events producer, and creative writing tutor. His poems have been published in a range of magazines and anthologies and in a debut pamphlet entitled Some Bright Elegance (Salt Publishing, 2012). He represented Zambia at Poetry Parnassus, and is a fellow of the Complete Works programme for diversity in British Poetry. Kayo is currently working on his first full-length collection and a new pamphlet was recently published by the African Poetry Book Fund, in collaboration with Brooklyn-based independent publisher Akashic Books.
