Each month we feature a new book written by one of our alumni. For March 2017, our author is Robert Seatter (Lincoln College, 1975).
Robert Seatter has published four poetry collections. The Book of Snow, which describes the arc of a relationship through the image of snow, is his latest. Jane Draycott, Senior Course Tutor for the MSt in Creative Writing at the University of Oxford, said: ‘Poetry collections this focused and intricately assembled are rare – The Book of Snow reveals Seatter at his most lyrical and elegiac while also at his most honest and sharp.'
Robert Seatter (robertseatter.co.uk) has had an eclectic career, spanning teaching, acting, publishing and broadcasting. He is now the Head of History at the BBC and Chair of The Poetry Trust which runs the acclaimed Aldeburgh Poetry Festival. He has written poetry for many years, and won awards and nominations for his writing including the National Poetry Competition, London Poetry, the Forward Poetry Prize and the Housman Poetry Prize. His work has appeared in many publications, on television and radio, and even on London’s buses.
While at the University of Oxford, Robert Seatter read English Language and Literature. He divides his time between London and Oxfordshire.
