Richard Price, hailing from Renfrewshire, is recognized as one of the more important voices of his generation, a poet who moves comfortably between the lyrical and the avant-garde. His collection Lucky Day was shortlisted for the Whitbread Poetry Prize, and he was an influential figure in a literary movement which he named: Informationist poetry.
In addition to his award-winning poetry, he has collaborated with sculptors, digital artists, and musicians. He published the collection Small World, also from Carcanet. Price has written a short story collection, A Boy in Summer (11:9 / Neil Wilson, 2002), a novel, The Island (Two Ravens, 2010), and is a vocalist and the principal lyricist for the musical project Mirabeau.
He was European Poet in Residence at the University of Coimbra in 2013. He is Head of Content and Research Strategy at the British Library. Find out more iabout him on his website.
