Contemporary Poets

Last night we were introduced to, or reminded of, some contemporary poets by our fellow members:

Martin presented us with David Horner, a children's poet and educator.
Lorna presented us with Robin Herne and Charlotte Hussey, contemporary using bardic traditions.
Terry presented us with Alice Oswald, a British poet who won the T.S. Eliot prize in 2002.
Vince presented us with Christopher Reed,  twice nominated for the Whitbread Awards.
Mike presented us with Billy Collins, Poet Laureate of the United States 2001 to 2003.

Many thanks for their input and please use the links above to find out more on these poets.
