William Sieghart is Britain’s foremost public champion of poetry’s capacity to enrich our lives. Over the last 25 years he has founded the National Poetry Day, the Forward Poetry Prize and the Poetry Pharmacy – and regularly broadcasts and writes spreading the message. He is a tireless worker for peace in the Middle East, founding Forward Thinking to promote face to face dialogue. Come and hear him on poetry for every man and woman – and the role of dialogue in seeing the world through the eyes of others.
