    Poet Laureate, playwright and Visiting Poetry Artist at the University of Lincoln, Carol Ann Duffy will return to the University of Lincoln on the evening of Thursday 27 April to read a selection of her works.

    Carol Ann Duffy is Professor of Contemporary Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University, and was appointed Britain’s poet laureate in May 2009. She is the first woman, the first Scot, and the first openly LGBT person to hold the position.

    Her collections include Standing Female Nude (1985), winner of a Scottish Arts Council Award; Selling Manhattan (1987), which won a Somerset Maugham Award; Mean Time (1993), which won the Whitbread Poetry Award; and Rapture (2005), winner of the T. S. Eliot Prize. Her poems address issues such as oppression, gender, and violence, in an accessible language that has made them popular with our own students, schools and with the wider public alike making her a popular visitor to the University of Lincoln throughout the academic year.
