Ticket price

Poet Blake Morrison talks to fellow poet and writer Jem Poster about his first full-length collection of poems in almost 30 years, Shingle Street. Morrison established a reputation as one of the UK’s most inventive and accomplished poets with his first two collections, Dark Glasses, winner of the Somerset Maugham Award, and The Ballad of a Yorkshire Ripper. The opening poems of Shingle Street are set along the Suffolk coast and address an eroding landscape ‘abashed by the ocean’s passion’. Others speak of a flood-tide of terror, address political issues and are portraits of the past.

Morrison is a poet, novelist, critic, journalist and librettist and author of two bestselling memoirs, And When Did You Last See Your Father, winner of the J B Ackerley prize for Autobiography and the Esquire Award for Non-Fiction, and Things My Mother never Told Me. He is professor of creative writing at Goldsmiths College.
