Clare Pollard is a poet, playwright, translator, and editor. Please join us for a special evening celebrating poetry and translation.
Clare Pollard’s first collection of poetry, The Heavy-Petting Zoo (1998) was written whilst she was still at school, and received an Eric Gregory Award. It was followed by Bedtime (2002) and Look, Clare! Look!(2005), which was made a set text on the WJEC A-level syllabus. Her fourth collection Changeling (2011) was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, and her latest is Incarnation (Bloodaxe, 2017).
As part of the Writers at York series, Clare Pollard will be giving a talk on poetry in translation, followed by a reading of her own poetry.
Writers at York offers a lively programme of public readings and workshops, and aims to celebrate and explore the work of emerging and established contemporary writers.
