Under the Influence

Lemn Sissay

Tickets: £10 / £7 (concessions and Poetry Society members)

The Poetry Society`s Under the Influence series, where one poet looks at the influence another poet has had on their work, continues in 2008, and in June will see Lemn Sissay ‘under the influence’ of the Liverpool poets:

Lemn Sissay was born in 1967, the year The Mersey Sound was first published, but he wasn't given a copy until 15 years later when his head teacher spotted his burgeoning talent. Within its pages Lemn found the confirmation he had been looking for, that poetry should be for the people, by the people. It is a beat he has worked to ever since. This event is part of Liverpool 08.

The host for the event will be the Poetry Society’s Chair, Anne-Marie Fyfe.

The Poetry Society is delighted to be supporting Liverpool 08. Presented in association with the Arts Theatre.
