‘Alison Brackenbury loves, lives, hymns and rhymes the natural world and its people like no other poet.’ (Gillian Clarke.) Alison was born in 1953 in Lincolnshire, from a long line of skilled farm workers. She studied English at Oxford, then worked for 23 years as a metal finisher. Despite devoting much time to grassroots politics – and animals – she has published nine collections, won an Eric Gregory and a Cholmondeley Award, and broadcast frequently. Her latest collection, Skies, (Carcanet, 2016), was featured on Radio 4 and in The Guardian. Skies was chosen as one of The Observer’s Poetry Books of the Year.
Ledbury Poetry Salons also include an open mic. Come along and read and enjoy the friendly, supportive atmosphere.
You can hear podcasts from previous Salons including most recently Gregory Leadbetter, Rhiannon Hooson and Nichola Deane http://www.poetry-festival.co.uk/series/poetry-salon/
