An evening of poetry and song

This is a past event.

An evening of poetry and song

Andrew and Nat were commissioned by three literary festivals to celebrate the Brontë legacy through the production of new work inspired by the creative siblings. Following their successful tour throughout the north of England, we are delighted to welcome Andrew and Nat to Haworth, the home of the Brontë family and the place where they created their great works. 
 
Andrew McMillan was born in South Yorkshire in 1988; his debut collection physical was the first ever poetry collection to win The Guardian First Book Award. The collection also won the Fenton Aldeburgh First Collection Prize, a Somerset Maugham Award (2016), an Eric Gregory Award (2016) and a Northern Writers’ award (2014), and was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation for Autumn 2015. Andrew currently lectures in Creative Writing at Liverpool John Moores University and lives in Manchester.

Nat Johnson is a singer-songwriter and guitarist based in Sheffield. Nat’s work has earned her national press acclaim, songwriting commissions, several live sessions for BBC 6 Music and support from various BBC DJs including Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Marc Riley and Janice Long. Following a period with the band Monkey Swallows the Universe, Nat now works as a solo artist, and released a solo album, Neighbour of the Year, in late 2014.
