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.

‘I’m a member of a local Poetry School workshop that meets monthly – it has transformed my writing, my knowledge and my confidence and given me a community of fellow poets to share work with. Joining is one of the best things I’ve done!’
