Poets : Julia Copus & Pascale Petit
An intimate evening of readings, conversation and ideas. Lay down your day and come listen, get involved, listen more, converse and share your thoughts with two of the UK's leading poets.
Award-winning poet Julia Copus will read from her third collection The World’s Two Smallest Humans, short-listed for the T S Eliot Prize and the Costa Poetry Award. Her poetry series was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and short-listed for the Ted Hughes Award.
Her poems are ‘born out of a powerful sense of place’ Faber and Faber.
Pascale Petit is the winner of the 2018 RSL Ondaatje Prize for her latest collection, Mama Amazonica. She is author of seven poetry collections. She is a frequent nominee for the T S Eliot Prize and a recipient of the Cholmondeley Award. Her last collection Mama Amazonica is a beautiful and searing exploration of her mother’s mental illness.
