Fresh from winning the 2021 Forward Prize for Poetry, we’re delighted to welcome Luke Kennard to our next Inventions of the Text. Free and open to everyone.

The prose poem, Absurdist and Surrealist technique in contemporary poetry, Transatlantic influence and publishing trends in contemporary British poetry… the preoccupations of award-winning poet, novelist, critic and lecturer Luke Kennard, who reads at Inventions of the Text on Wednesday 24 November, 17.30 GMT.

Just last month, Kennard won the 2021 Forward Prize for Best Collection for Notes on the Sonnets, a recasting of Shakespeare’s 154 sonnets as a series of anarchic prose poems set in a joyless, present-day house party.
