Fittingly, we open our poetry season with Richard Scott, reading from his debut collection Soho, shortlisted for the 2018 T.S. Eliot Prize. “If you ever get the chance to see Richard Scott read live, jump on that opportunity ASAP.” (Marie Claire)

Abigail Parry’s debut collection, Jinx, was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. It has been described as “vaudevillian sleaze” (Stephanie Sy-Quia) and “the most exciting debut of the year” (Tristram Fane Saunders).

Nick Makoha’s  debut ‘Kingdom of Gravity’ was shortlisted  for the 2017 Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection and nominated by The Guardian  as one of the best books of 2017. He won the 2015 Brunel International African Poetry prize.
