Poet Laureate, playwright, and Visiting Poetry Artist at the University of Lincoln, Carol Ann Duffy returns to Lincoln to read a selection of her works.

Carol Ann Duffy is Professor of Contemporary Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University, and was appointed Britain's poet laureate in May 2009. She is the first woman, the first Scot, and the first openly LGBT person to hold the position.

Her collections include Standing Female Nude (1985), winner of a Scottish Arts Council Award; Selling Manhattan (1987), which won a Somerset Maugham Award; Mean Time (1993), which won the Whitbread Poetry Award; and Rapture (2005), winner of the T. S. Eliot Prize.

Her poems address issues such as oppression, gender, and violence, in an accessible language that has made them popular with the University's own students, local schools, and with the wider public of Lincoln alike, making her a popular visitor to the University of Lincoln throughout the academic year.

This poetry reading is open to all members of the public, however booking is essential. It will take place in the Stephen Langton Building.
