Helen Mort’s star continues to rise. She has been the recipient of the Foyle Young Poet of the Year Award on five occasions, was the youngest poet in residence at the Wordsworth Trust and her first collection Division Street was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize and the Costa Prize. Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy has described Helen as “among the brightest stars in the sparkling new constellation of young British poets.”
Finuala Dowling reads her touching and idiosyncratic poems from her new book Pretend You Don’t Know Me. Renowned for her poetry’s accessibility, humanity and wit, as well as her beguilingly honest stories of home, parenthood, love, loss and desperation, Finuala has won many new converts to poetry in her native South Africa.
