Citizens of Everywhere publishes ‘Power Mediated: Three Poems from Brussels’

The Citizens of Everywhere project, from the Centre for New & International Writing at the University of Liverpool, has published a blog piece by M E Grey, including three poems examining different ways that political or bureaucratic power can be discussed, and challenged or valued, in poetry.

The Citizens of Everywhere project is commissioning writers, artists, scientists, academics, cultural organisers and more to write for the Guardian and the Conversation. Their blog also provides a home for writers tackling issues related to citizenship, belonging and borders in the aftermath of Theresa May’s ‘citizens of nowhere’ speech in October 2016. Content ranges from reflections on the borderless nature of plastic waste, to work on the linguistics of politics that is ripe for rediscovery.
