Fiona Sampson, Professor of Poetry at the University of Roehampton, will be in conversation with Jenni Murray about her latest poetry collection, The Catch, her new book Lyric Cousins: Musical Form in Poetry, and her ground-breaking work with poetry in health care.
Professor Sampson was one of the pioneers in using poetry in institutions of care, such as hospitals, care homes and prisons. She has worked across the range of health authority care settings, undertaking several long-term residences in the 1990s.
She spoke in detail about the topic at the Wellcome Trust Inaugural Public Mike White Memorial lecture in the summer. Currently the Director of the Roehampton Poetry Centre, and editor of the international quarterly magazine POEM, Professor Sampson has published over twenty books.
You can catch the programme here on Friday 13th January at 10am.
