Hay Festival: Gillian Clarke, Carol Ann Duffy
For 25 years Hay Festival has brought together writers from around the world to debate and share stories at its festival in the staggering beauty of the Welsh Borders. Hay celebrates great writing from poets and scientists, lyricists and comedians, novelists and environmentalists, and the power of great ideas to transform our way of thinking. We believe the exchange of views and meeting of minds that our festivals create inspire revelations personal, political and educational. Hay is, in Bill Clinton's phrase, 'The Woodstock of the mind'.
Hay Festival was founded around a kitchen table in 1987 and continues to attract the most exciting writers, filmmakers, comedians, politicians and musicians to inspire, delight and entertain.
For 10 days in May, Hay is full of stories, ideas, laughter and music.

Gillian Clarke is an award winning poet and teacher, with a wide involvement in the poetry and writing scene. Much of her writing centres on her connection with Wales and the Welsh landscape.
"Gillian Clarke's poems ring with lucidity and power...her work is personal and archetypal, built out of language as concrete as it is musical"
Times Literary Supplement

Appointed Britain's poet laureate in May 2009, Carol has also won many awards including the Forward Prize, the Whitbread Poetry Award and the T S Eliot Prize. Her poems address issues such as oppression, gender, and violence, in an accessible language that has made them particularly popular in schools.
