In 2010, Oxford author Nancy Campbell travelled to the most northern museum in the world on the island of Upernavik in Greenland to work as a writer-in-residence. Nancy will describe her experiences in the Arctic in the depths of winter and reveal how the lessons the Greenlandic community taught her changed her life forever. Her residency resulted in the books How To Say ‘I Love You’ In Greenlandic which won the Birgit Skiöld Award in 2013 and Disko Bay, described by Carol Ann Duffy as ‘a beautiful debut from a deft, dangerous and dazzling new poet writing from the furthest reaches of both history and climate change.’ Disko Bay has been shortlisted for a 2016 Forward Prize ( The Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection).
A writer and artist with a particular interest in nature writing and the polar regions, Nancy writes for the Independent and the Times Literary Supplement. She is also the editor of the international art magazine Printmaking Today.
A must-see event for everyone interested in travel, climate change or poetry.
