Miriam Nash Readings

Miriam Nash Readings

'Miriam Nash’s work is thematically satisfying, energetic and dynamic. These anarchic poems are the product of an original and febrile mind. A blast.' – Jackie Kay, Edwin Morgan Poetry Award


Miriam Nash will be giving a number of readings from her first full-length collection All the Prayers in the House, runner-up in the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award 2016, at festivals and events in 2017, including the Ledbury Poetry Festival and the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

'An unusual form, the pantun, brings a subtle, nuanced swing to the depiction of a man who is able to walk out from one marriage and into another.'   Miriam was interviewed on Radio 4's new poetry programme Blast on 24 July.
