An evening of prize-winning narrative verse!

Forward Prize-winner Kei Miller explores legends, histories and landscapes on the fringes of Jamaican society in his collection In Nearby Bushes. From rural Nigeria to Mount Olympus, Inua Ellams’s verse novel The Half God of Rainfall interweaves ancient and urban myths to tell a story of pride, power and revenge.
