The Siegfried Sassoon Fellowship was formed in 2001 to honour the memory of this extraordinary writer and man.
It coordinates a range of activities, including an annual conference, literary tours and themed events.
January 22, 1921: Siegfried Sassoon writes in his diary:
This was the truth, as near as I could get it,
Although that truth is truth to me no longer...
Siegfried Loraine Sassoon was an English poet, writer, and soldier. Decorated for bravery on the Western Front, he became one of the leading poets of the First World War. His poetry both described the horrors of the trenches, and satirised the patriotic pretensions.
All members of the Siegfried Sassoon Fellowship receives a printed publication of the bi-annual 'Siegfried's Journal' - this is a text rich journal always full of splendidly researched and written Sassoonery.
Throughout the year we host a range of Siegfried Sassoon Fellowship events, including joint meetings with the Wilfred Owen Association, talks by eminent speakers, and our annual commemorative cricket match.
