UNITED VERSES

United Verses (www.unitedverses.com) is a Shanghai-based project that brings together English and Chinese poets. Every poem is translated, creating a body of work in both English and Chinese. 
So far, United Verses has held four live showcase events, with over 40 Shanghai poets and translators. The project’s first anthology was recently published. As founder Tom Mangione said in a recent interview with Luna Luna magazine, “this anthology [was] created to try and increase dialogue and awareness about what the ‘other’ is doing…if it can provide even just a peek into what’s going on in Shanghai, it will be a success.”
In this RAS Studio event, Tom Mangione will speak about the origins, establishment, concept and running of the United Verses project. He will be joined by several of the poets featured in the anthology, who will read their work. Join us for an insight into the worlds of independent publishing and cross-cultural activity in Shanghai. Copies of the anthology will be available for sale.
Entrance: RMB 20 (RAS Members) and RMB 50 (non-members) including a drink (soft drink or glass of wine). 
Membership applications and membership renewals will be available.
