Rommi Smith, our Poet in Residence for September, will read finished and in-progress poems inspired by her residency, alongside existing work. She will explore a re-reading of William Wordsworth’s poem Daffodils, and Dorothy Wordsworth’s journal entry about the subject, in a context of liberation narratives and, specifically, Wordsworth’s Sonnets Dedicated to Liberty.

This event is hosted by Michael McGregor, Director of the Wordsworth Trust, and will include an audience Q&A.
