A poet who can move from the deeply personal to the mythic and historic without losing the impact of either, American poet Nicole Sealey is the author of Ordinary Beast, finalist for the PEN Open Book Award. Her honours include the 2021 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem. She is the instigator of the world famous Sealey Challenge in which participants read a poetry book a day for the month of August. Kevin Young is The New Yorker’s poetry editor and the director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. He is the author of thirteen books of poetry and prose, including Book of Hours, the winner of the Lenore Marshall Prize for Poetry from the Academy of American Poets. His collection Jelly Roll: A Blues was a finalist for both the National Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Hosted by Ledbury Poetry Critic Oluwaseun Olayiwola.
