HAMPSHIRE POET ROBYN BOLAM

A unique opportunity to hear prize-winning poet Robyn Bolam reading from her stunning new collection, Hyem. Robyn’s poetry collections, published by Bloodaxe, are The Peepshow Girl (1989), Raiding the Borders (1996), and New Wings: poems 1977–2007 (2007), which was a Poetry Book Society recommendation. An Eric Gregory award was followed by first prize in the Cheltenham Festival poetry competition and her poem, ‘The Forked Tree’, about a woman’s courage, was praised for its syllabic form and vivid imagery. She has continued to write about survival in difficult circumstances, loss and love, and the challenges facing the natural world.
