About Lawrence Sail
Lawrence Sail’s Waking Dreams: New & Selected Poems (Bloodaxe Books, 2010) was a Poetry Society Special Commendation. He has since written two later collections, The Quick (2015) and Guises (2020). He has been the chairman of the Arvon Foundation, director of the Cheltenham Festival of Literature and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
From the blurb: Lawrence Sail’s poetry is noted for its scrupulous combination of close observation and broader reflections. In Guises he builds on the strengths of twelve previous collections, writing ‘in praise of perception’, which brings its own challenges and delights, embodied in the shifts and layers of language.
