Wed 14 March, Durham

For our seventh Arts of Breath event, Michael Symmons Roberts will be reading from his novel, Breath, and from his poetry. He will also (with Prof David Fuller) discuss breathing illness in his family background, and how breathing and breath feature in his work both as subject and as affecting poetic form and the performance of poetry.

Michael Symmons Roberts is an award-winning writer. He has published seven collections of poetry and has also written novels, libretti and texts for oratorios and song cycles. His work has received the Forward Prize, the Costa Poetry Prize and the Whitbread Poetry Award and been nominated for numerous others. He writes and presents documentaries and dramas for broadcasting, and is Professor of Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University.
