This Border Crossings session brings together two poets whose definitive voices and styles play with poetic form in both writing and performance. Shehzar Doja is an invigorating new poet who has performed internationally and whose work has appeared in a number of journals and anthologies. Named a Youth Icon by Bangladesh’s NewAge newspaper in 2017, he stands out for his beautiful yet unflinching poetry. Shehzar will be reading alongside Tim Turnbull, who has performed his sharp and witty poetry internationally for over 25 years—with his first full collection, Stranded in Sub-Atomica (Donut Press, 2005) shortlisted for the Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection in 2006. Tim has seen his poetry published in numerous anthologies and magazines, as well as several pieces of supernatural fiction.
