Pigs, Peaches and Poems: How I Found A Voice Through the Magic of Writing

Join poet, playwright, novelist and former young laureate Cecilia Knapp for an evening of her poetry and prose as well as a conversation on how she found writing, found her voice and why poetry is the perfect playground for dreaming and discovery. Cecilia will share insights into her writing process and craft, and a few things she’s learnt along the way, with an opportunity for questions too.

Cecilia Knapp is the Young People’s Laureate for London, 2020-2021. Her poems have appeared in Magma, The White Review, Ambit and Bath Magg. She curated the poetry anthology Everything is going to be Alright which was published by Trapeze in June this year. Her work has been anthologised, most recently in The Dizziness of Freedom (Bad Betty Press). She was shortlisted for the 2020 Rebecca Swift Women’s Prize and the Outspoken poetry prize. Her debut novel is forthcoming with The Borough Press.

It is poets like Cecilia, whose works are shot through with a refreshing sincerity and sharp bite of realism, who will fight to keep the arts front and centre
