Each event in the series features an established poet and his or her own choice of a second poet - an exciting, emerging talent, usually someone who's published only one collection - presenting some of our most influential and our most promising new writers side by side.
So far Andrew Motion has chosen to perform with Colette Bryce; Douglas Dunn with Henry Shukman; Wendy Cope with Joanne Limburg and Fleur Adcock with Julian Stannard.
Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate, said of the series "I'm a strong supporter of the idea that writers who have been around for a long time and who are in a position to 'help' other writers, if that's the right word, should do so. The premise of Poetry Doubles is a very good one."
