Arc Publications' Six Slovak Poets includes work by a generation who started publishing in the 1960s, who lived through the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 and saw the 1993 division of the country give birth to today’s Slovak Republic. Emilia Haugovà and Ivan Štrpka, two of the collection’s contributors, will be joined by a half dozen London-based poets to celebrate the sixth event in the Maintenant series held at the Rich Mix arts centre in London's Brick Lane. As ever, the Maintenant series will advocate a diverse selection of poetic methodologies, ages & nationalities - collecting together some of the most interesting performers Europe has to offer.
