You are warmly invited to hear Andrew McMillan read his own work, alongside six outstanding young poets from our New Poets Prize competition.

Andrew McMillan was the judge of this year's New Poets Prize - a pamphlet competition for writers between the ages of 16 and 22. Andrew said of The New Poets Prize:
 
"The pamphlets I saw were of an incredibly high quality, and more than that, I felt I was reading poetry that needed to be written. These are poets who are asking for our time, for us to slow down, who are presenting us with a language with which we can better understand ourselves. The future of poetry is in safe hands."
