  • Opens up new platform for poets to showcase their talent
  • Creates space for like-minds to network and share

By Ruwandi Gamage

The British Council (BC) Sri Lanka is hosting its first-ever poetry evening today, 14 July, at the Colombo British Council premises, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

BC has set up a web link on its Facebook event page to sign up for all those who are interested to join in. People aged 18 and above are invited to join the evening and enjoy an evening of poetry. 

The aim of this event is to provide poets a platform to showcase their talent among a likeminded crowd. It hopes to hold this event twice every month.

Although this is not the first time such a platform has been created for poets, the need for such a platform has been long overdue as none of the previous attempts have had a long lifespan. 

BC is venturing into an adventure that has attained much interest in the Colombo community, therefore this event could embark on a journey that will inspire creativity in many others.
