Winner of the TS Eliot and Forward prizes, Sinéad Morrissey grew up in Northern Ireland, is Belfast’s first Poet Laureate and Professor of Creative Writing at Newcastle University. Rooted in everyday experiences yet often strangely eerie, philosophical yet spiritual, Morrissey’s poetry contains a strong thread of her Northern Irish identity – from a Troubles-era childhood, to Belfast as a bustling modern-day city.
Her travels and time spent abroad in Japan, New Zealand and China also inform her work. Morrissey is a captivating and elegant performer of her own work.
