About Liz Berry

Liz Berry is an award-winning poet from the Black Country. Her first book of poems, Black Country (Chatto 2014), a ‘sooty, soaring hymn to her native West Midlands’ (Guardian) was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, received a Somerset Maugham Award, the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Award and Forward Prize for Best First Collection 2014. Her pamphlet The Republic of Motherhood (Chatto, 2018) was a Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice and the title poem won the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem 2018. Liz's latest book is The Dereliction (Hercules Editions, 2021), a collaboration with artist Tom Hicks.

About Tom Hicks

Tom Hicks is the artist behind the documentary photography project Black Country Type. His work explores the post-industrial landscape of the region, focusing on words, typography, handmade lettering and signs. He also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features, objects and the post-industrial landscape of the area. Influenced by psychogeography, his photographs are taken on regular ‘drifts’ through the Black Country, typically by bicycle. His work has been published and exhibited widely, most recently in the photobook I.D.S.T (The Modernist, 2020) and a solo exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery (2020).
