Editor of four popular poetry anthologies - including the hugely successful Penguin's Poems for Life - and former 'Poetry Doctor' at The School of Life, Laura Barber, will be offering fun and informal poetry therapy sessions to celebrate Southbank Centre's Big Wedding Weekend, one of the highlights of their landmark Festival of Love. Laura will be using her expertise in all things verse to prescribe the best possible poem for your emotional ailments. Whether you need a sonnet to woo your crush or a limerick to lighten your wedding invitations, Laura will be on hand to dip into her vast well of poetry knowledge and give you a much needed shot of literary medicine.

Laura will be signing copies of her new poetry anthology Penguin's Poems for Weddings, a charming compendium of poems about love and matrimony. This refreshing take on weddings in the modern age includes poetry from both classic and contemporary masters of rhyme and verse for all aspects of getting hitched, from eloquent sestets for proposing to meaningful verse for the ceremony itself.
