Bohdan Piasecki


Bohdan is a poet from Poland based in Birmingham. He has taken his poems to venues ranging from the upstairs room in an Eastbourne pub to the main stage of the Birmingham Rep, from an underground Tokyo club to a tramway in Paris, from a bookshop in Beijing to an airfield in Germany. In the UK, he regularly features at the country’s most exciting spoken word nights, festivals, and readings. He enjoys the creative chaos of big field festivals just as much as the composed concentration of literary events.

Bohdan actively seeks out collaboration opportunities with other artists, especially those working in media other than literature: he has worked with web designers, theatre makers, dancers, musicians, video artists, and architects.

He is currently working on Palimpsest City, a digital/live project using a virtual metropolis as an anthology for spoken poetry.
Bohdan is Lead Artist for the Roundhouse Poetry Collective. He holds a doctorate in Translation Studies from the University of Warwick, and is a regular Visiting Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Birmingham. He is also a Visiting Research Fellow at Goldsmiths, University of London.
