The Ballad Seller is a limited edition collection of long-form poems by UEA alumnus Luke Wright, based on his most recent touring show. The collection is illustrated by Martin Rowson. Luke graduated from UEA in 2003 and is the author of several books, including Who Writes This Crap? (with Joel Stickley, 2007) and Mondeo Man (2012). He performed online every night via Twitter throughout the first COVID-19 lockdown. Earlier this year he won a Saboteur Award in the Best Spoken Word Show category for his show The Remains of Logan Dankworth, which is currently shortlisted in the Poetry category of the East Anglian Book Awards.
