About Richard Price View Profile

Richard Price is the author of the acclaimed Lucky Day, Moon for Sale, and the prize-winning Small World (all Carcanet). He recently published a book of essays on poetry, small presses, and artist’s books, Is This A Poem? (Molecular Press). “Poets have to be linguistic virtuosi, but I prefer them to be brilliant quietly. Richard Price’s poetry is inventive, sometimes dazzling, but never merely showy.” – Carol Rumens, The Guardian

‘The tutor, Richard Price, created a supportive and stimulating atmosphere which helped to gel an excellent group of various talents. I learned a tremendous amount about current developments in poetry and also about my own development. This group has an exciting and stimulating feel about it, which is quite unusual and to be valued. The course leader was instrumental in generating this.’
