Camille Adnot to Guest at SpokenWord Paris November 19th–Monday’s Theme: Shadow & Light

l&s theme camille adnotCamille Adnot is a fiction writer and poet, who writes both in English and in French. She grew up in France, where she read English at the ENS of Paris and Paris-Diderot uni, which developed her love for the music of the English language. That love was furthered by living in the UK for a couple of years, first in Nottingham and then in Oxford, where she taught French. She’s also around London from time to time. Currently she’s doing a PhD on the mapping of chaos in William Blake’s illuminated books at Paris-Diderot, and teaching English lit. That hasn’t led her to engrave her poetry yet, but she’s worked in collaboration with visual artist Anne Huynh on turning a number of poems into paintings, and they’re also thinking of making a short movie out of one. In the meantime, Camille keeps on writing, performing at open mics like Spoken Word Paris or Angora Poets, taking part in the AWOL workshop, and she’s recently become part of the Poetry Brothel, where you can listen to her poetic alter ego, Sasori Sting, recite poems in a decadent fashion. Her poems in English, and poems of other writers that she has translated into French, have been published in The Opiate, Those That This, and Quail Bell Magazine.
