Andrew McMillan’s debut collection Physical was the first ever poetry collection to win The Guardian First Book Award, amongst others. His second collection, Playtime, was published to great acclaim in 2018 and was The Sunday Times Poetry Book of the Year. Andrew will be giving a reading from his work, supported by Joshua Judson, a poet from Nottingham. Joshua is an alumnus of the Mouthy Poets program and is a member of the Barbican Young Poets family. His work has appeared in publications such as The North, Magma, Brittle Star, The White Review, The Rialto, and The Anthropocene among others. His debut pamphlet Gongoozler is forthcoming from Bad Betty Press in 2021.
