Sinead Morrissey, Belfast’s first Poet Laureate, won the T. S. Eliot prize in 2014 for fifth collection, Parallax.

The chair of judges called the book ‘politically, historically and personally ambitious, expressed in beautifully turned language’. She has also been shortlisted for the Forward prize, and was the youngest ever winner of the Patrick Kavanagh award. Poetry International has called her work ‘rooted in our everyday experiences yet often provocatively eerie’. She’ll be in conversation with Maitreyabandhu about her life and writing.
