With two new collections due out in 2018 and several sell-out collections behind her, award-winning poet Ruth O’Callaghan has travelled the world writing, mentoring and teaching. Here, in conversation with award-winning screenwriter Gaby Chiappe, she reads from her work and talks about the path that led her to poetry, the people and places that have influenced her along the way - and explains how poetry can be put to practical use in the world. Having first visited Gibraltar as a teenager (she got a job working in Mount Alvernia!) Ruth is delighted to be re-visiting Gib, one of the first stopping points on the road that brought her to where she is today.
