Salome Benidze is a poet from Georgia. She has written two collections, as well as a best-selling novel.

Salome will share a brand-new chapbook of poems, I Wanted to Tell You, written in Georgian with English translations by the brilliant British poet Helen Mort (Division StreetNo Map Could Show Them).

The two poets will talk about their work, exploring the weird and wonderful things that happen when you carry poems from one language to another. All welcome and no knowledge of Georgian required!

Presented in partnership with the Poetry Translation Centre
