Andrew McMillan (Corridor of Light)

In summer 2021, Manchester Literature Festival and Manchester Poetry Library at Manchester Metropolitan University co-commissioned Hafsah Aneela Bashir, Andrew McMillan and Reshma Ruia to write new poems inspired by their memories and associations with Oxford Road. MLF and MPL also commissioned Modify Productions to produce short films capturing the poets performing their work on location. The films were showcased at Manchester Poetry Library from 21-23 October 2021 for the inaugural Corridor of Light.

You can watch Andrew McMillan performing his poem topography on location.

Andrew McMillan is the author of the novel Pity and three acclaimed poetry collections: physical (the first ever poetry collection to win The Guardian First Book Award), playtime (winner of the inaugural Polari Prize) and pandemonium, was published to wide acclaim.
