Poems to Live for: Session 10

Chairs: Michael Hulse and Donald Singer

Readers - to be confirmed


For this session and future sessions, we welcome suggestions of poems (out of copyright and not your own) you would like read or to read yourself. Please email us as soon as possible with your suggestions. We can’t promise to use all readings or suggestions but we shall use as many as possible.

It must not be your own AND must be out of copyright. 

For example for literary works:
UK copyright continues for 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the last remaining author of the work [including translator] dies.*

For the UK, if  the author is unknown, copyright will last for 70 years from end of the calendar year in which the work was created, although if it is made available to the public during that time, (by publication, authorised performance, broadcast, exhibition, etc.), then the duration will be 70 years from the end of the year that the work was first made available.

For the US copyright endures for a term consisting of the life of the author and 70 years after the author’s death [including translator]. 

For the US, in the case of an anonymous work, a pseudonymous work, or a work made for hire, the copyright endures for a term of 95 years from the year of its first publication, or a term of 120 years from the year of its creation, whichever expires first.
