Commonwealth poet

Leeds graduate and lecturer in creative writing Rommi Smith (left) has been appointed the BBC's artist-in-residence for this summer's Commonwealth Games in Manchester. She will write a 72-line poem, to mark the 72nd year of the competition, and a series of sporting sonnets, based on interviews with athletes and community groups. "My task is to reflect and document the public experience of the Games," she said. "I'll be going out to talk to different people in different communities in Greater Manchester and relating the forthcoming sporting events to elements people experience in their everyday lives."
