Poetic Injustice (7.30pm Friday 25 May)

Graduate Union (17 Mill Lane)

A relaxing evening of poetry from some of Cambridge finest student poets! With a cheap bar and some low-key music.

The event is to raise awareness about the sentencing of Owen Holland, a student in the English Faculty who received a 2.5 year suspension last term for reading a poem during a collective protest against a visit by Universities Minister David Willetts.

Owen has lodged an appeal, which is yet to be heard. It’s vital that we keep his unjust treatment in the public eye and continue to pressure the university to get his sentence overturned.

Poets already confirmed for the evening:
Ryan Dobran
Caitlin Doherty
Rowan Evans
Tristram Fane-Saunders
David Grundy
Ian Heames
James McKnight
Luke McMullan
Sophie Seita
Georgia Wagstaff
Please share widely!
