The Centre for Poetry and Poetics at Durham University promotes the reading, writing and editing of poetry from classical antiquity to the present, as well as the critical exploration of current issues and ideas in literary theory. It incorporates and builds upon the work of the Basil Bunting Poetry Centre, encouraging new research on the valuable Bunting Archive and other important archival collections in the Palace Green Library
The Centre for Poetry and Poetics supports a strong tradition of live poetry events in Durham, including a series of readings each year at Durham Book Festival, for which it appoints the Book Festival Laureate. The Book Festival Laureate for 2017 is Andrew McMillan. The Centre has a University-wide membership and a lively programme of readings, seminars and lectures.
