Join three of Faber’s exciting new poets as they read from their work. Rachael Allen is poetry editor of Granta magazine and her first full collection will be published by Faber in 2019. Sophie Collins is the author of the Faber collection Who Is Mary Sue?, which will resonate with anyone concerned with identity, shame, gender, trauma, and culture. Zaffar Kunial won the Geoffrey Dearmer prize for his poem ‘The Word’, and his debut collection, Us, looks with a tender toughness at his upbringing by his English mother and Lahore-based Kashmiri father, and the distances his own life has had to travel in between.
Introduced by Professor Stephen Regan, Durham University
