Tickets are now available for this free event with award-winning British poet Wendy Cope.
Wendy Cope is the author of five collections with Faber and Faber: Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis, Serious Concerns, If I Don’t Know, Family Values, and, most recently, Anecdotal Evidence. She is one of the most popular and best-selling poets writing in English. In 1998, she was voted the BBC Radio 4 listeners’ choice to become the next Poet Laureate (a post she made clear she would not want), and in 2010 she was awarded an OBE. The poet and former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, wrote that ‘Wendy Cope is without doubt the wittiest of contemporary English poets, and says a lot of extremely serious things.’
Wendy will be supported by three Nottingham Trent University (NTU) students – Aly Stoneman, Tuesday Shannon and Munashe Dziva.
The event will be chaired by NTU’s Dr Rory Waterman, who is the author of the book Wendy Cope (Liverpool University Press, 2021).
