Poetry Evening with Poet Ann Pilling

Poetry Evening with Poet Ann Pilling


This evening we welcome Guest Poet Ann Pilling, Ann was born in industrial Lancashire, but has strong Northern Roots, she now lives in Upper Wensleydale.

After a short period of teaching she spent the next 25 years she writing and editing over 40 titles for children; she also published 2 adult novels and won the Guardian Prize for ‘Henry’s Leg’; ‘Black Harvest’ and ‘Henry’s Leg’ were re-published as ‘children’s ‘classics’’. In 2006 Ann began publishing her poetry and has five collections in print. The 6th will be printed later this year. Her poems have won many prizes and have been published widely in magazines. Some of them have been set to music. She was commissioned to write the libretto of ‘Semmerwater’ an award-winning children’s musical, for the Swaledale Festival in 2009. We look forward to welcoming Ann as guest host to our LCA Poetry Evening. []
