Forward Meet The Poet is a new online series which will feature readings from the ten books shortlisted for Forward Prizes.

It’s an opportunity to hear excellent writers read live, discuss what they do with words, and see them field questions. These will be moderated by a member of the 2020 Forward Prizes jury.

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

Registration is £3 per event, via Eventbrite. Or… bargain alert… you can become a Forward Arts Foundation supporter and access all events in this series for a donation of £10 or more, also via Eventbrite.
