Terrance Hayes’s brilliant Poetry Society Annual Lecture on Gwendolyn Brooks and her influence, programmed with the Obsidian Foundation and presented in partnership with the University of Liverpool, is published for the first time, alongside insightful reviews of Ciaran Carson, Derek Mahon, Rebecca Perry and Kayo Chingonyi. Look out for more online content in the coming weeks, including new Poetry Mixtapes from contributors Anita Pati and Romeo Oriogun – a poetical take on Desert Island Discs.

Don’t miss The Poetry Review summer launch via Zoom, from 7pm on 21 July 2021, when our readers will be Romeo Oriogun, Vicki Feaver, Richard Scott and Dean Browne, fresh from winning The Poetry Society’s Geoffrey Dearmer Prize. Dean’s poem ‘The Last Consultation’ was chosen by the acclaimed US poet Patricia Smith, who said, “I loved reading this entreaty out loud, uncovering its rampant rhythm and sly wordplay.”
