About the Event
Esther Morgan’s four poetry collections are published by Bloodaxe Books. Her third, Grace, was shortlisted for the 2011 T. S. Eliot Prize. She grew up in 1970s rural Worcestershire where she wandered off a lot into the fields and talked to the cows. She began writing poetry seriously during a stint as a volunteer at the Wordsworth Trust in Grasmere before arriving in Norwich to do an MA in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia.
Since then, she’s been involved in the poetry world as an editor and teacher and she helped set up The Poetry Archive, the world’s largest online collection of poets reading their own work.
Her fourth collection, The Wound Register, (Bloodaxe: 2018) was shortlisted for the poetry category of the East Anglian Book Awards 2018. It was also runner-up for the 2019 New Angle Prize for Literature.
Esther currently lives on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and works as Communications Manager for Norfolk Museums Service.
