John Clegg and Gareth Reeves Discuss the Challenges of Researching and Writing Poetry

Two of the Department’s published poets, Gareth Reeves and his PhD student John Clegg explore how their writing of poetry relates to their research. [MP3 version]

They explain how they began writing poetry rather than writing about poetry, and discuss how writing poetry gives them unique insights into the forms and methods employed in the work of other poets.
