In collaboration with Bloodaxe Books, Jerwood Charitable Foundation and The Reading Agency, Forward Arts Foundation are giving away copies of Essential Poems from the Staying Alive Trilogy on Thursday 23 April, World Book Night 2015.

Thousands of book loving volunteers will be stopping strangers in the street to give them a special copy of Neil Astley’s Essential Poems, with extra poems by Forward Prize winners Kei Miller, Michael Symmons Roberts, Liz Berry, Emily Berry, Nick MacKinnon and Stephen Santus. Their poems are available on the Forward Arts website.
