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

'A pleasure to return to Richard's workshop, it's a highlight of my week. Feedback is always considered and constructive, and Richard facilitates the session very well.'
