The next Readers’ Choice and Editor’s Choice poems will be selected from those published in July and August, and we are delighted that the latter will be chosen by Keith Hutson.
Keith Hutson has written for Coronation Street and for many well-known comedians. His poetry is widely-published both here and internationally. Keith’s debut pamphlet, Routines, was published in 2016 by Poetry Salzburg where he is now on the editorial board. Keith’s current pamphlet, Troupers, is published by smith doorstop and is a Laureate’s Choice, selected by Carol Ann Duffy with whom Keith now tours extensively. His debut full collection, Baldwin’s Catholic Geese, will be published by Bloodaxe in February 2019.
Keith delivers poetry and performance workshops to schools for the Prince’s Trust/Children and the Arts, and is poet-in-residence at the Square Chapel Theatre, Halifax, where he hosts a monthly poetry evening, WordPlay.
