Alice Oswald

‘Creative Minds at Birmingham’, the School of EDACS Writers & Artists Distinguished Speaker Series, continues on May 15 when Alice Oswald will read from her work.

Alice’s second collection, Dart, won the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2002. Her third collection, Woods etc, was a Poetry Book Society Choice and was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection and the T. S. Eliot Prize. A Sleepwalk on the Severn appeared in 2009, as did Weeds and Wild Flowers, her collaboration with the artist Jessica Greenman.

Last year Alice became the first poet to win the Warwick Prize for Writing with Memorial, a reworking of Homer's Iliad.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet Alice during a complimentary drinks reception.

Tickets for this event are free for current University of Birmingham staff and students, £6 to the general public. Registration for this event is essential:
