Liverpool University Press’s Pavilion Poetry, edited by Deryn Rees-Jones, has quickly earned a reputation for publishing some of the most exciting contemporary poetry. We’re delighted to host three UK and US poets for this special Finding the Words event, part of the University of York’s Writers at York series.
