Graduate named Young Poet Laureate for London

Poet Selina Nwulu, who graduated from the University with a degree in French and Italian from the School of Modern Languages, has been named Young Poet Laureate for London.

An article in The Guardian outlines how Selina started to write poetry and her plans ahead.

Selena has also recently published an anthology of poems called The Secrets I Let Slip, described on her website as a tribute to modern angst, a bittersweet celebration of the everyday outsider, and an irresistible invitation from an emerging poet of considerable talent.

Dr Rabah Aissaoui, Head of the School of Modern Languages, said: "The School of Modern languages is very proud that Selina has been named Young Poet Laureate for London, which is a testament to her creative talent. The recent publication of her poems and her outstanding performance at the last Edinburgh festival are further reflections of her many talents."

The Young Poet Laureate for London programme is supported by the Writer Development Agency and the Foundation for FutureLondon. Find out more on the website.
