Anthony has long been a friend of the ORB, and has graciously published some of his poems with us. Anthony’s poetry has been published in The Poetry Review, Poetry London, New Statesman, and Granta, among others; his work has also appeared on various news channels including BBC Radio 4. Last year, his second collection ‘After the Formalities’ was shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize, and was also a Guardian and Telegraph poetry book of the year.
For the second part of our three part poetry evening we were lucky enough to hear some poems from the award winning poet Dr. Hannah Sullivan.
Dr. Hannah Sullivan is a British academic and poet. She is the author of The Work of Revision, which won the Rose Mary Crawshay Prize and the University English Book Prize, as well as the poetry collection Three Poems, which won the T. S. Eliot Prize.
