Press release:
Poetry Collection "Ox and Mandarin | Wayfaring Strangers" to launch in Amsterdam

Utrecht, June 2024 - Milla van der Have is happy to announce the launch of her latest poetry collection, "Ox and Mandarin | Wayfaring Strangers," scheduled to take place on June 29th at 3:00 PM at Perdu, Amsterdam.

This dual publication, published in English by Dancing Girl Press and in Spanish by Ril Editores, offers an exploration of the surreal adventures of its 2 main characters: Ox and Mandarin. Inspired by the lockdowns of 2020-2021, the poems loosely follow (or perhaps challenge) the structure of the zodiac, inviting readers to traverse the boundaries of imagination and reality.

Special guest Stephanie Green, a renowned poet from Edinburgh, will first give you a poetic introduction to sea monsters, from her latest chapbook Ortelius' Sea-Monsters. Following this, Milla will present her collection, accompanied by music from Walco van Loon. After the readings there will be a Q&A with both poets, delving into the themes and inspirations behind their work. 

The event promises to be an engaging evening for poetry enthusiasts, writers, and artists alike. The launch provides a unique opportunity to indulge in literary explorations and connect with like-minded individuals within the poetry community.

All interested parties are cordially invited to attend the launch. For more information about the event and to book a free ticket:

Date: June 29th, 2024
Time: 3:00 PM (doors open 14.30)
Location: Perdu, Kloveniersburgwal 86, 1012 CZ Amsterda
