Swansea University Centenary Lecture Series
Curated and introduced by Professor in Creativity, Owen Sheers

Join us for a special evening of readings and conversation with poet Raymond Antrobus, winner of the 2019 Ted Hughes Award, Sunday Times Young Writers Award and the Rathbones Folio Prize for his debut collection The Perseverance. Arresting, challenging and generous Antrobus’s poems move through continents and history to create a stunning collection of verve, empathy and craft that encompasses issues of deafness, masculinity, dementia, race and heritage.

After the conversation they’ll be answering your questions.

This event is free, but booking is required. This event will be held online with details about how to join the virtual meet-up being circulated via email to registered attendees. The discussion will begin at 7:00pm, but you will be able to join the event’s online waiting room from 6:30pm.
