The Poetry Exchange podcast shares the conversations we have been having with people about poems as friends.

Our podcast illuminates the unique way in which an individual reader has connected to a poem and the part it has played in their life.

In each podcast you will hear an individual talking about a poem that has been a friend to them, as well as the ‘gift’ recording of the poem made especially for them.

Episode 10: ‘The full moon in daylight’

In this episode, Mark talks about the poem that has been a friend to him – ‘For Sigrid’ from ‘The Bounty’ by Derek Walcott.

The episode was recorded at St Chad’s College Chapel as part of Durham Book Festival in October 2015.
