Q&A with writer Ruth Padel! Open to all.

Ruth Padel is a British poet, novelist and non-fiction author, known for her nature writing and connections with music, science, Greece and conservation. Padel has won the UK National Poetry Competition and published six collections of poetry, celebrated for glittering imagery, and for "passion, wit, music, texture and elegance.” Her collection Voodoo Shop (2002) was shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot and Whitbread Prizes. "Visual, sensuous and highly seductive, as if Wallace Stevens had hijacked Sylvia Plath with a dash of punk Sappho thrown in," said the Times Literary Supplement. She is a great great grand-daughter of Charles Darwin and a Fellow of The Zoological Society of London. She currently lives in London, where she teaches poetry at King’s College.
