Two award-winning modern poets with a fresh perspective on landscape and nature join us for an informal evening of poetry and conversation to round off our WildLines event.

Polly Atkin (pictured) debut poetry pamphlet bone song was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award, 2009; her second, Shadow Dispatches, won the Mslexia Pamphlet Prize, 2012. In 2014 an extract from her first collection, Basic Nest Architecture, was awarded New Writing North’s Andrew Waterhouse Prize for ‘reflect[ing] a strong sense of place or the natural environment’.

Zaffar Kunial has been both the most recent Poet-in-Residence at the Wordsworth Trust in Grasmere and a recipient of a place on 2014’s Faber New Poets scheme, which saw the publication of his first pamphlet-length collection of poems, Us.
