Writers in Conversation: Philip Gross Event

1 December 2014
Nuffield Theatre SO17 1TR

Event details

This new series features some of today’s best fiction writers, poets, non-fiction writers and playwrights reading from their work and talking about the writing life: how characters take shape, where ideas come from.

Led by Creative Writing lecturers at the University of Southampton, Writers in Conversation takes place in the Nuffield Kitchen, helping to create an evening that is relaxed but engaging and intelligent yet informal.

Philip Gross, winner of the 2009 T.S. Eliot Prize, is a writer of many parts – spanning poetry, thought-provoking fiction for young people, schools opera libretti, radio short stories and plays. His poetry up to and including the Whitbread-Prize-shortlisted The Wasting Game is collected in Changes of Address (2001). The Water Table won the T.S.Eliot Prize 2009. Deep Field, a PBS Recommendation, dealt with his father’s aphasia, and with voice and language itself, an exploration continued by a moving new collection, Later. He is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of South Wales where he leads the MPhil/PhD in Writing programme.
