For this fascinating event one of Britain’s most revered and celebrated poets, Andrew Motion and dazzling newcomer Hannah Sullivan will read their poems and interview each other about their work. They share similarities – particularly the long-form approach and the autobiographical qualities of their poetry. Andrew Motion was Poet Laureate from 1999 – 2009 and is co-founder of the online Poetry Archive. He has received numerous awards for his poetry, including most recently the Ted Hughes Award. His most recent collection is Essex Clay. Hannah Sullivan’s debut Three Poems won the 2018 T.S. Eliot Prize. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/mar/20/three-poems-by-hannah-sullivan-review
