Join award-winning poet Seán Hewitt as he launches his debut pamphlet, Lantern. This is a jewel-bright and quietly euphoric debut, as thrilling in its physicality as it is dextrous in its imagination. Fiona Benson has written of these poems’ ‘musicality, and their sensuous, tender rapture’. Lantern, she writes, ‘is astonishing’.
Seán will be joined by one of our most urgent and lauded contemporary poets, Andrew McMillan, whose debut collection physical was the first ever poetry collection to win The Guardian First Book Award. His second collection, playtime, was published by Jonathan Cape in 2018, and was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation for Autumn 2018.
