Richard O'Brien

Richard O’Brien is a poet, academic and translator. He has co-translated three books of children’s poetry from other languages for the Emma Press: The Noisy Classroom (Ieva Flamingo), The Book of Clouds ( Juris Kronbergs), and Everyone’s the Smartest (Contra). In 2017, he won an Eric Gregory Award from the Society of Authors for his own poetry for adults, and in 2018 he was appointed Birmingham Poet Laureate for two years. As a kid he once wrote to TV’s Tony Robinson with his own personal theory about the extinction of the dinosaurs, but scientists as a whole remained unconvinced.
