Join them for a revealing discussion about their experiences as Poet in Residence at Cyprus Well.

Kathryn Simmonds was the first Charles Causley Trust Poet in Residence in 2014. In 2008, she won the Forward Best First Collection Award with Sunday at the Skin Laundrette, described in the Guardian as a “playful and knowing first collection fuelled throughout by a strong sense of lyricism.” While living in Launceston Simmonds finished her first novel, Love & Fallout.

Dr Alyson Hallett was the second Charles Causley Trust Poet in Residence in 2014 and the first to live in Causley’s home, now managed by the Charles Causley Trust, Cyprus Well. She is a prize-winning poet whose latest book of poetry is Suddenly Everything.
