Mid Border Arts and the Sidney Nolan Trust have organised this event with celebrated Mexican poet Manuel Iris, Poet Laureate of the City of Cincinnati. Manuel Iris is coming to the UK as a visiting research fellow of the University of Roehampton and will spend a week at The Rodd. His poetry reflects his obsession with beauty, time, death, and the bridges that marry them.
Iris received the “Merida” National award of poetry (Mexico, 2009) for his book 'Notebook of dreams', and the Rodulfo Figueroa Regional award of poetry for his book 'The disguises of fire' (Mexico, 2014). In 2016 three different anthologies of his poetic work were published: 'The naked light', in Venezuela; 'Before the mystery', in El Salvador, and 'Traducir el silencio/Translating silence', in New York. The book won two different awards in the International Latino Book Awards in Los Angeles in 2018.
