Luke Brown grew up in a former fishing town on the coast of Lancashire. He works as a book editor and is a lecturer at the Centre for New Writing at the University of Manchester. He writes regularly for the Financial Times; and sometimes for the TLS, London Review of Books and New Statesman. His debut novel My Biggest Lie was published in 2014, and his fiction has appeared in The White Review.
Keiran Goddard is a writer and policy expert. His debut poetry collection was shortlisted for the Melita Hume Prize and he was runner-up in the William Blake Prize. He has worked as in advocacy and higher education, runs a think-tank focused on automation and worker’s rights and is a fellow at the the University of Cambridge. His second full-length collection, Votive, was published by Offord Road Books in late 2019 and was described by Michael Symons Roberts as a ‘ remarkable triptych – ambitious, troubled and beautiful’ and by Glyn Maxwell as ‘ thoroughly unexpected poetry of the finest distillation’
Luke will also be signing copies after the event.
