The three speakers each have their own passion for and personal connections with poetry and music, which they have experienced in different ways in both their personal lives and celebrated
careers. Beth, often considered to be one of the most powerful women in modern rock, claims much of her writing is inspired
by Sylvia Plath, Wallace Stevens and early British war poetry. Armitage is Professor of Poetry at the University
of Leeds and University of Oxford and is not only one of the most studied contemporary poets
of today but was previously a member of rock band The Scaremongers. Wilson has vast experience having interviewed a huge number of figures from art, music and literature from Ai Wei Wei to David Bowie and his Poet in the City event last year, with PJ Harvey and Don Paterson, sold out.
So if you want to hear exclusive insights into the world of lyric writing and the inspirations that musicians and poets take from one another's art form book a ticket for this discussion.
