Details

Sinéad Morrissey is the author of six poetry collections, including Parallax (2013), winner of the T. S. Eliot Prize. In 2017 she was awarded the Forward Prize for her most recent collection, On Balance, and is currently Director of the Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts at Newcastle University.

Sinéad often writes of her native Northern Ireland, but her poetic gaze ranges much more widely and frequently interrogates the act of looking itself. Her poems are resonant with meaning and beautifully crafted, provoking the reader or listener into further thought. Join Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre at Think Human Festival to hear one of the most critically-acclaimed poets in the UK read from a selection of her most recent as well as older work.
