Luke Wright presents a work in progress performance of
Luke Wright, Poet Laureate
Luke Wright seeks poetry’s top job. Has own quill.
With a new Poet Laureate due in 2019 Wrighty’s chucking his hat in the ring. But he’s a dark horse at best. He turned down his invite to the palace in 2012 and he’s really got to stop penning one-vowelled invectives about Tory politicians if he’s to get a look in.
So he’s a on a mission to reinvent his poetry, to unite rather than divide. But can one poet ever really represent an entire nation? And just who are these previously laureled rogues? Luke delves into the murky world of poets laureate past, while serving up a sparkling set of new poems.
