Worldmakers: Sarah Corbett, Emily Hasler, Alice Miller

In 2018 the award-winning Pavilion Poetry series from Liverpool University Press will publish three new poetry collections, approaching the making and unmaking of the world through architecture, landscapes and alternative futures.

The poems in Emily Hasler’s debut collection, The Built Environment, probe at the ways we understand and reconstruct our environment, asking how our world is made, and how it makes us, by examining places, objects, buildings, landscapes, rivers and bridges.

Sarah Corbett’s fifth collection, A Perfect Mirror, asks us to examine our actions in an unsettling world, drawing on contemporary events, the landscape of West Yorkshire and the journals of Dorothy Wordsworth.

New Zealand poet Alice Miller’s second collection Nowhere Nearer looks at how we forge our worlds from the stories of the dead, the illusion of progress, and “the futures we never let happen.”

We are delighted to welcome Emily, Sarah and Alice to Grasmere for a special reading to celebrate these new publications. They will also lead a writing workshop in the afternoon for anyone who writes their own poetry – more information will be announced closer to the time.
