Metic = a foreigner or a resident alien whose allegiances are split between their homeland and the new country.
An engaging and provoking poetry masterclass with Nick Makoha, winner of the Brunel University African Poetry Prize 2015 and writer of The Dark. It explores the Black Metic Experience of poets and investigates how writers in exile are differentiated from natives. As a writer in exile himself, Nick uses Metic to explain the phenomena experienced by black writers in the UK and the US. The aim is to investigate your own unique Metic experience. Join us for a stimulating workshop to stretch and flex your poetry writing muscles.
