Our New President

The Philip Larkin Society is delighted to welcome our new President, journalist, author and advocate for poetry and the arts, Rosie Millard OBE.

Rosie says: “I am absolutely honoured and thrilled to become President of the Philip Larkin Society. Larkin was Librarian when I joined the University as an undergraduate and his life and work was one of our most central and joyful concerns during Hull’s tenure as City of Culture in 2017. To now be invited to help further our understanding and appreciation of Larkin will be a joy and a privilege”.
