Erotic and knowing, consumed with doubts or full of longing – these are just some of the themes of sacred poetry. The winner of this year’s international, interfaith poetry competition will be announced at this celebratory event, featuring wide-ranging readings from the shortlisted poets and competition judge Kim Moore. Kim’s first collection The Art of Falling was published in April 2015. She won a Northern Writers’ Award in 2014 and an Eric Gregory Trust Fund Award in 2011. Her poem In That Year is shortlisted for the 2015 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem.
