Staffordshire Poet Laureate 2017-19

I am incredibly honoured and excited to have been appointed the position of Staffordshire Poet Laureate for the next two years.  As a regular participant at various poetry and performance events around the county,  I have been struck by just how varied and stimulating the modern poetry scene can be, and I cannot wait to get  readers and writers from all walks of life involved in that.   Equally, I am hugely looking forward to working with the new Young Poet Laureate, as the first female Laureate duo for Staffordshire. – Emily
