After the hugely acclaimed What I learned from Johnny Bevan and Frankie Vah, we’re delighted to welcome back Luke Wright. With a new Poet Laureate due to be announced in 2019 he’s chucking his hat in the ring. But let’s be honest, he’s a dark horse at best. But Luke really does care about Britain, so he’s on a mission to write poems that might be able to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Luke delves into the murky world of poets laureate past: the heroes, the villains, and ones who didn’t even write poetry.
