Forward Meet The Poet is an online series featuring readings from books shortlisted for Forward Prizes.

It is an opportunity to hear excellent writers read live, discuss what they do with words, and see them field questions.

As former Forward jury chair, Jeremy Paxman, put it: “At last! A chance to ask poets what they’re on about. It’s been too long.”

Events held in 2020 were moderated by members of the then  Forward Prizes jury. You can watch recordings of the events below.
