Close-up Poetry at the Guardian

The Guardian has a new series of poets reading their own work to camera. So far we seen Simon Armitage, Paul Farley and Jo Shapcott. Here’s Liz Lochhead with her poem My Rival’s House.

Poetry Parnassus at Southbank Centre

Simon Armitage

We’ve been hearing rumblings of this for the last year and a half and now it looks like it’s finally coming to land. Spearheaded by the poet Simon Armitage this promises to the biggest poetry event in the world. Ever. Certainly, it feels like the most ambitious. Can anyone say, United Colours of Poetry?

All very exciting!
