Poetry Centre Stage
For our final Centre Stage reading of StAnza 2018, we’re delighted to welcome Gillian Allnutt to the festival for the first time. For her sparse, musical poetry “of keeping faith”, as Sean O’Brien described it, Gillian Allnutt was been awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry 2016, as well as receiving a Cholmondeley Award and being shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize twice. Her latest collection, wake, is due out in May 2018.
