Michael Longley has long been acknowledged as one of our greatest living poets, “a keeper of the artistic estate, a custodian of griefs and wonders” according to Seamus Heaney.

Among Michael’s honours are the T.S. Eliot Prize, the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry and, most recently, the PEN Pinter Prize for Poetry in 2017. He has published 11 collections of poems, the latest of which, Angel Hill, was shortlisted for the Forward Poetry Prize.

Acclaimed poet, artist and documentary film-maker Imtiaz Dharker was born in Pakistan, raised in Glasgow and now lives between London and Mumbai. Awarded the Queen’s Medal for Poetry in 2014, her collections include The Terrorist at My Table, Leaving Fingerprints, Over the Moon and her latest, Luck is the Hook, all published by Bloodaxe Press.

“If there were to be a World Laureate, then for me the role could only be filled by Imtiaz Dharker.” Carol Ann Duffy
