Poet and playwright Damian Gorman begins new nine-part video series featuring readings of new poems

When it comes to writing for stage, television and the page, Damian Gorman has seen it all. In a distinguished career stretching over three decades he has won a BAFTA, a Better Ireland Award, a Major Individual Artist Award from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and even an MBE.

Born in Newcastle, County Down in 1961, Gorman is also an accomplished poet, and has just released the first of nine online videos featuring readings – and explanations – of nine poems written over the past few years, and some much older.

The first in the Considerations series if 'The Giant Basket'. Watch the video below.
