Liz Berry was born in the Black Country and now lives in Birmingham. Her first book of poems, Black Country (Chatto 2014), described as a ‘sooty, soaring hymn to her native West Midlands’ (Guardian) was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, received a Somerset Maugham Award and won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Award and Forward Prize for Best First Collection 2014. Her pamphlet The Republic of Motherhood (Chatto, 2018) was a Poetry Book Society Pamphlet choice and the title poem won the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem 2018.

Liz’s poems are both subtle and accessible. Her delivery is warm and moving. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to hear one of our most compelling poets.

Ysella Sims is a poet and writer. She recently completed an MA in Creative Writing and has had work published in Brittle Star, The Blue Nib, Inside Out and The Guardian.
