John Kliphan set up Live Poets many years before I reached Paris. It launched the career of quite a few Parisian poets. Unfortunately, it had stopped running by the time I got there.
Jen Dick encouraged me to restart it, so I did (in 2010). To emphasise the lack of continuity, I renamed it Poets Live. I handed it over when I left Paris, and, after more handovers, it’s still running. Thank you to all the subsequent organisers.
My original Poets Live website is no more. It used to host the recordings I made of many of the readings. These recordings are now archived on this site, here.
Note my press, corrupt press, posthumously published John Kliphan’s Low Level Flying.
