AF Fellow Alice Oswald elected as 46th professor of poetry at Oxford

We are delighted to find out that poet Alice Oswald- AF Poetry Finalist 1996- is now the 46th professor of poetry at Oxford, and replaces the new UK poet laureate Simon Armitage.

Oswald is the first woman to hold this post, which dates back to 1708.

‘Nobody’ by Oswald is out in early September.
