Verve Poetry Festival: Alycia Pirmohamed


Friday Night Headline Event: Sean Hewitt, Jason Allen-Paisant, Alycia Pirmohamed. Hosted by Helen Bowell

Our regular Friday evening poetry headline event features three incredible contemporary poets. Sean Hewitt’s debut full collection Tongues on Fires (Cape, 2020) won the Laurel Prize in 2021, and the follow up, Rapture’s Road (Cape, 2023) is brand new for VERVE.

Jason Allen-Paisant’s lauded debut, Thinking With Trees (Carcanet, 2021) was followed in 2023 by Forward Best Collection winning Self-Portrait As Oterllo. Alycia Pirmohamed will be reading from her excellent debut Another Way to Split Water (Polygon, 2022).

Hosting these three wonderful poets for readings in discussion is Helen Bowell, whose debut pamphlet, The Barman (Bad Betty, 2022), was PBS Summer Pamphlet Choice.
