Poet: Lucy English

Take Me to the City by Lucy English

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

A film by Jon Conway of immprint graphic design, who notes [in a description for a version of the film at Vimeo, subsequently removed]:

The poem, to me is a description of memories of a ‘City.’ As I read I felt as though the poet was conversing directly with me about her experiences. I tried to visualise what I saw, and how the words themselves impacted the poem. By combining colours, imagery, typography and audio spectrums, the piece reacts with the words of the poem, creating new colours, and visuals. I like to think that what the piece looks like is similar to the imagery our mind creates when we listen to a story for the first time.

Performance poet and novelist Lucy English, a Reader in Creative Writing at Bath-Spa University, is co-organizer of the Liberated Words Poetry Film Festival.
