    The Coronet Theatre's popular contemporary poetry series, Poetry Club, continues in their atmospheric bar. In March they will welcome two high profile poets, David Harsent and Anthony Anaxagorou. Stay on for a drink after the readings, where the poets will be signing copies of their books. David Harsent has published twelve collections of poetry. Fire Songs (2014) won the T. S. Eliot Prize. Night (2011), a Poetry Book Society Choice, was shortlisted for the Costa, Forward and T. S. Eliot poetry prizes and won the Griffin International Poetry Prize. His most recent, Salt, was published in 2017 to critical acclaim. And his latest collection Loss is published in January 2020, a sequence of intricately patterned verses that capture the lyrical, dream-like intensity of a mind at night. David Harsent’s parallel work in music theatre has involved collaborations with a number of composers and has been performed at the Royal Opera House, Carnegie Hall and on Channel 4 TV. He is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Roehampton and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Anthony Anaxagorou is a British-born Cypriot poet, fiction writer, essayist, publisher and poetry educator based in Hackney. His second collection After the Formalities, tracks the male body under pressure from political and historical forces, and celebrates the precarious joys of parenthood. It is currently shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize 2020. Anthony is artistic director of Out-Spoken, a monthly poetry and music night held at London’s Southbank Centre, and publisher of Out-Spoken Press.
