A Mind set Free – war poetry and Owen Lowery

Article by Owen Lowery

You may have heard of Owen Lowery who is a Creative PhD student studying at the University of Bolton, where I teach. His first book has just come out with Carcanet Northern House. This has largely been with the help and encouragement of Professor Michael Schmidt. He is now going to be a Visiting Professor here helping us to devise more Post Grad work.

This major piece by Owen Lowery appeared this last Saturday in The Independent and I found it moving, illuminating and informative. As you will see, University of Bolton gets a mention!
