Poet, playwright, and translator Sasha Dugdale was born in Sussex, England. She has worked as a consultant for theatre companies in addition to writing her own plays. From 1995 to 2000, she worked for the British Council in Russia. She has published four collections of poetry with Carcanet, Notebook (2003), The Estate (2007), Red House (2011), and Joy (2017). In 2017 she was awarded a Cholmondeley Prize. Between 2012 and 2017 she was editor of Modern Poetry in Translation. She is co-director of the Winchester Poetry Festival.

Born in London to English and Jamaican parents, Karen McCarthy Woolf's first book-length collection, An Aviary of Small Birds (Carcanet, 2014), a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, was shortlisted for both the Forward and Aldeburgh Best First Collection Prizes, and selected as a Guardian/Observer book of the month by Kate Kellaway, who described it as a 'beautiful, painful, pitch-perfect debut'. Her second collection, Seasonal Disturbances was published by Carcanet in 2017. Her poems have been translated into Spanish, Turkish and Swedish, selected for Poems on the Underground, made into poetry film and dance collaborations and dropped from a helicopter over the Houses of Parliament.
