Stephanie Sy-Quia and Will Harris: Amnion

Stephanie Sy-Quia’s Amnion (Granta) is a one-of-a-kind ‘lyric epic’, weaving memoir, essay and poetics into one of 2021’s most eagerly awaited debut poetry collections.

Sy-Quia read from the book and was in discussion with Will Harris, whose own Granta debut RENDANG won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. The event will be chaired by Rachael Allen, Granta’s poetry editor, whose most recent collection is Kingdomland (Faber).
