Debut Poetry Collection from William Wootten

William Wootten, Co-Director of the Bristol Poetry Institute and Lecturer in Poetry and Creative Writing, will next month launch his first collection of poetry, You Have A Visitor.

We are delighted to announce the publication of William Wootten’s debut collection of poetry You Have a Visitor, which will be launched in Bristol next month.

You Have a Visitor is a book of songs and stories.  Intricately constructed, and employing a range of tight metres, stanza shapes and rhyme schemes, the poems delight in making use of traditional possibilities of English verse, and are, in the case of the lyrics, highly musical.

William Wootten’s poems have appeared in magazines including PN ReviewPoetry Review, the Spectator and theTimes Literary Supplement. He is also the author of the critical study, The Alvarez Generation: Thom Gunn, Geoffrey Hill, Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath and Peter Porter.

Further information

Join us for the launch of You Have a Visitor on Thursday 10 March, 17.15 in LR1, University of Bristol, 3-5, Woodland Road, Bristol, BS8 1TB. The event will be free and will be followed by a drinks reception.
