International poet/writer, Poet Laureate of Canterbury and Chancellor of the University of Manchester,  Lemn Sissay MBE is the author of several books of poetry alongside articles, records, public art, and plays. The Guardian newspaper heralded the arrival of his first book Tender Fingers In A Clenched Fist. “Lemn Sissay has Success written all over his forehead”. He was 21. Between the ages of 18 and 32 he tracked his family down across the world. His career as a writer happened in spite of his incredible life story not because of it.
