A special event which featured distinguished poets and illustrators Simon Armitage, Chris Riddell, Philippa Johnson, Heather Phillipson, Colette Bryce and Nick Hayes.

This event explored the relationship between poetry and illustration and how the two disciplines engage to create fascinating visual and verbal dimensions and reveal ideas in exciting and unexpected ways. This was a rare opportunity to hear how some of our best loved poets think about illustration and what exactly some of our illustrators think of poetry – all while our poets and illustrators create work live in front of us!

Simon Armitage: Author of ten collections of poetry and winner of numerous awards, Simon has become one of Britain’s best loved writers and was awarded
a CBE in 2010 for services to poetry.

Colette Bryce, critically-acclaimed, she has published three collections with Picador, The Heel of Bernadette (2000), The Full Indian Rope Trick (2004) and Self-Portrait in the Dark (2008). She received the Cholmondeley Award in 2010.

Nick Hayes is an author and illustrator and has won two Guardian Media awards. His first book, The Rime of the Modern Mariner, is a graphic novel and a new poem inspired by Coleridge’s tale. Nick is a political cartoonist for the Guardian and was founding editor of Meat Magazine.
