Headline Poetry Reading: Disruptive Voices

With Victoria Kennefick & Shivanee Ramlochan

Victoria Kennefick is one of the boldest, most exciting poets to emerge in recent years. A major poet in the making, Kennefick’s debut, Eat or We Both Starve (Carcanet 2021) was shortlisted for the 2021 Costa and T.S. Eliot poetry prizes, and won the 2022 Seamus Heaney Prize for Poetry. Writer, activist and editor Shivanee Ramlochan’s debut collection, Everyone Knows I am a Haunting (Peepal Tree, 2019) was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. Hailed by Olive Senior as, ‘a challenging, unforgettable and courageous new voice.’ Ramlochan is an electrifying performer of her work. Sylvia Plath Literary Festival is proud to bring you two of the most dynamic and essential poetic voices of our times.
