Basic Nest Architecture | The launch of Polly Atkin’s first collection

Join Polly Atkin at the Lancaster Literature Festival for the launch of her debut collection, Basic Nest Architecture.

Polly Atkin’s first collection of poetry marks a startling new talent, with intelligent, densely metaphorical lyrics, often inspired by the Lake District where she has made her home for a decade. The book is divided into three sections, themed around three interwoven ideas: place as nest, the mind as nest, and the body as nest. The collection explores ideas of home and belonging, in the world and in our own selves. The remarkable poems in Basic Nest Architecture are a testament to the persistence and artistry of Polly Atkin. As well as being profoundly personal, they reach out to the modern world in all it’s complexity and diversity.
