One of Britain’s most lauded contemporary poets, Robin Robertson has won many accolades, including the Forward Prize for best single poem for his haunting narrative poem ‘At Roane Head’, one of his ‘invented Scots folk narratives… everyday tales of murder, madness, congenital malformation and selkies’.

This year he released the book-length narrative poem, 'The Long Take', which John Banville called ‘a masterly work of art, exciting, colourful, fast-paced… and almost unbearably moving’. In his other life he is an editor at Jonathan Cape, where he has worked with Irvine Welsh, Anne Enright, Michael Ondaatje and Alice Oswald among others. Robertson joins VUP editor Fergus Barrowman for an hour of readings and conversation.
