York Centre for Writing: Poetry series - Q&A with Daisy Lafarge

About

Daisy Lafarge was born in Hastings and studied at the University of Edinburgh. Her debut novel Paul is forthcoming with Granta and was awarded a pre-publication Betty Trask Award in 2019. Her first poetry collection Life Without Air (Granta 2020) was recommended by the Poetry Book Society and shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize 2020. The book centres questions of ecology, environmental threat and toxic misogyny. She is currently working on Lovebug, a book about infection and intimacy between species. Daisy will be reading from her work, and will be interviewed by York St John lecturer Dr Rebecca Tamás, as well as answering audience questions.

About the Series

The York Centre for Writing Poetry Series centres BAME, queer and working class writers, challenging old fashioned and out of date visions of what poetry and poets can be. Our readers' original, exciting work demonstrates why poetry is one of the fastest growing and most innovative literary genres in the UK!

The series is based at York Centre for Writing, the hub for writing events, projects and publications at York St John University. Community is at the heart of our ethos, and our events create opportunities to meet fellow poetry lovers and build creative networks across York and beyond. The series is curated by York St John Creative Writing lecturers Rebecca Tamás and Caleb Klaces.
