An Interview with Adam Horovitz

Marking his appearance at the Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival, Max speaks to Adam about his work and his most recent project with Palewell Press.

Adam Horovitz released his first pamphlet, Next Year in Jerusalem, in 2004 to strong reviews, and a second, The Great Unlearning, in 2009. His debut collection, Turning, was released by Headland in 2011. His most recent book, released by the History Press in June 2014, was released by to coincide with the Laurie Lee centenary celebrations, titled A Thousand Laurie Lees

Adam was the Poet in Residence for Glastonbury Festival's official website in 2009, and was voted onto the Hospital Club 100 in 2010 as an emerging talent. He was awarded a Hawthornden Fellowship in 2012. He was a judge for the Manchester Poetry Prize and the inaugural Bare Fiction poetry prize in 2014.

Currently, Adam is working on a book that takes material from the world of sustainable pasture farming, to be published next year with Palewell Press. Simultaneously he's the Poet in Residence for the Pasture-fed Livestock Association (which, he says, “isn’t something I ever imagined I would say”).
