The Manchester Writing School at Manchester Met invites you to an evening of poetry and music in the Royal Exchange Studio, hosted by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.

Zaffar Kunial’s debut collection Us was published by Faber & Faber in 2018. ‘His poems are precise, startling in their imagery, full of grace’ (Jackie Kay). Zaffar was born in Birmingham and lives in Hebden Bridge. Since his first public reading, of 'Hill Speak' at the 2011 National Poetry Competition awards, he has spoken at various literature festivals and in programmes for BBC radio, and won the Geoffrey Dearmer Prize for his poem 'The Word'.

Carol Ann Duffy and Friends is presented by the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University and the Royal Exchange Theatre in partnership with Blackwell’s.
