James is the organiser, translator and host of the International Poetry Night, a celebration of literature in multiple languages.
The event has been held since 2016 in Colombia, Italy and the United Kingdom. It has welcomed more than a hundred readers in fifty-four languages.
In 2018, 'The Confraternità Collection' was published in collaboration with the Confraternità dell'Uva Bookshop, Bologna. Written in nine languages with English translation, it brought together original writing from poets associated with the event in Italy.
New events will be organised in Edinburgh in 2021.
