Written by Hannah Silva. Commissioned by the Broadsheet, launching the Exeter Poetry Festival: 'I’m performing/talking on the 4th October at an event exploring tribalism in poetry, the supposed borders between different sorts of practice and the usefulness or otherwise of labels such as ‘mainstream’, ‘experimental’ and ‘performance’.'
