Polly Atkin and Kim Moore In Conversation

Meet two of Britain’s most interesting poets who have recently published hugely successful poetry collections: Polly Atkin’s Much About Body, Kim Moore’s All the Men I Never Married (winner of the 2022 Forward Poetry Prize for the Best Collection). They have also just published prose books that may not, at first sight, appear to have much in common.

Polly Atkin’s acclaimed memoir of living with pain, Some Us Just Fall, and Kim Moore’s challenging yet playful critical work, Are You Judging Me Yet? Poetry and Everyday Sexism explore similar problems but from very different angles. Everyday sexism and medical misogyny, poetry and health, and the importance of being seen, and seen true, will be explored in this fascinating conversation between two writers who challenge stereotypes of all kinds.

Polly Atkin lives in Cumbria. Her two poetry collections are Basic Nest Architecture and Much about Body. She is also the author of a biography, Recovering Dorothy: The Hidden Life of Dorothy Wordsworth. Her latest book is Some of Us Just Fall.

Kim Moore lives near Barrow-in-Furness. Her two poetry collections are The Art of Falling and All the Men I Never Married. She has also published a short memoir, What the Trumpet Taught Me. Her latest book is Are You Judging Me Yet? Poetry and Everyday Sexism.
