The Lancaster Words Festival concludes with Paul Muldoon, in conversation with fellow poet, Eoghan Walls. This will be a great chance to see Paul Muldoon, the worlds most widely read anglophone poet, who has won nearly every award there is for poetry including the Pulitzer, in conversation with my little self. I am really looking forward to it, if not a little star-struck.
