Description

In a rousing set, Zohab Zee Khan combines poetry with hip-hop to enthrall and entertain, giving listeners a new outlook on the possibilities of the spoken word. Khan is the 2014 Australian Poetry Slam champion and 2014 International Poetry Slam finalist. He is also a proficient didgeridoo player, harmonica beat-boxer, and percussionist.

Originally hailing from Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, he is the founding director of Zee Poetics, an organisation that aims to inspire a new generation of poets through performance based workshops. He has been writing and performing poetry since he was 13 years old. 

Bookworm International Literary Festival 2015

The Bookworm International Literary Festival at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China, coordinated by the School of English, promises to be a celebration of the power of literature and ideas.

This year Bookworm 2015 will see a number of internationally-renowned and award-winning novelists from a variety of backgrounds deliver talks, seminars and workshops on a wide range of interesting subjects, from gender and sexuality in China to the political relationship between Russia and the UK. The events will also allow the audience to engage and share ideas with the speakers, and there will be opportunities for those interested to receive professional advice on how to develop as a writer or pursue a career in the literary world.
