“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
'I thoroughly enjoyed the course - learnt so much - the tutor, Richard Price was excellent and so inclusive of all in the group online.'
