ModPo in London (October 2017)

A few months ago I announced that the ModPo team would be taking our annual “on the road” webcast to London, England, this year. Today we are excited to share more details of this visit. We are very grateful to our London-based partners for providing us spaces to host our two open ModPo events!

The first event will be a webcast on Thursday, October 5 at 6:30 in the evening (London time). The webcast will be held at the Film and Drama Studio at Queen Mary University of London’s Mile End campus. The studio is in the Arts Two building (building 35 on this map). The webcast is open to any ModPo student or friend of ModPo, and we will collect RSVPs closer to the date of the webcast. Doors will open at 6 PM and the webcast will begin promptly at 6:30.

The second ModPo event will be a meet-up and a filmed discussion of two poems that will be added to the ModPoPLUS syllabus. This event is also free and open to any ModPo student or friend of ModPo, and it will be held in the Keynes Library at Birkbeck, University of London. The Keynes Library is located at 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD. For reference, use 39-47 Gordon Square on this map. Doors will open at 6 PM, and we’ll start filming our discussion of the poem at 6:30 PM. We’ll announce the poems to be discussed a few weeks before the event.

If you have any questions about any of these events, please feel free to email us at We are taking RSVPs now. Write to Even if you aren’t sure you can come to either or both events, please mark them in your calendar. When you RSVP, please specify which of the two events (Thursday’s webcast or Saturday’s meet-up) you’ll be attending—or both!

We are so looking forward to greeting many U.K.- and Europe-based ModPo people in London on October 5 and 7, and we’re also looking forward to the start date of our sixth year of ModPo on September 9. If you haven’t done so already, enroll here and share this link with friends and family you think would be interested!
