Ruth Padel elected Oxford professor of poetry

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Ruth Padel, Charles Darwin's great-great-granddaughter, has just been elected Oxford's first female professor of poetry, which has to be the perfect opportunity to our Darwin anniversary piece from earlier this year, which featured an introduction from Ruth alongside four poems from her book Darwin: A Life in Poems.

Also, Ruth will be appearing at A Night of 400 Billion Stars (And Maybe Some String Theory), our evening of science, comedy, poetry, and song, on Monday 29 June at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London. Tickets are still available via the Bloomsbury website or by phone on 020 7388 8822. You can also join the event page on Facebook.
