The Poetry of the Periodic Table - Thinktank, Birmingham, 9 November


Little Atoms presents the second of our Two Cultures In Conversation evenings. Join award-winning poet Isobel Dixon and Dr Zoe Schnepp of the University of Birmingham to explore the elementary, from Arsenic to Zirconium. Birmingham's Thinktank provide's the perfect location for a night where we use poetry and science to examine the stuff that makes up our world.

Local poetry publisher the Emma Press will respond to the event with a specially-commissioned poem from Richard O'Brien and illustration from Emma Wright, to mark what will be a truly unusual evening.


In association with Arts Council England and the Emma Press.
