Brian ​Bilston

Brian Bilston is a poet who has been sharing verse on social media for the last few years with varying degrees of success. Winner of the Great British Write Off competition in 2015 and former Virtual Poet-in Residence for Waterstones and the World Economic Forum, Brian has recently published his first collection of poetry, You Took the Last Bus Home, in October 2016.

Typically obscured behind a fug of Twitter pipe-smoke, the Chipping Norton Literary Festival is truly honoured to host this exploration of the poet behind the pipe with distinguished academic, Dr Dylan Miller .
