Peace Poetry at Liverpool Literary Festival
The RSL is taking bookings from Members and Fellows only.
RSL Fellow Fiona Sampson reads her newly commissioned poem, as well as poems by Wilfred Owen, Ivor Gurney and other poets writing through conflicts to find a route to peace. She also talks about her experience of poetry in the post-Yugoslavian conflict Balkans. Fiona Sampson has received numerous national and international honours and been published in thirty-seven languages. She is Professor of Poetry at the University of Roehampton and her latest book is the critically-acclaimed In Search of Mary Shelley. Literary scholar Professor Dame Janet Beer took up her post as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool in 2015; she is a Trustee of the British Council and was awarded a Damehood for services to higher education and equality and diversity in January 2018.
