Red Room Poetry Fellowship

Red Room is such a wonderful organisation. They do the most innovative things with poetry to bring it into a public view – from educational projects like Poem Forest, Mad poetry, supporting Afghanistan women through Voices in the Cage, Poetry in First Languages, poetry on toilet doors, on pigeon legs, on garden walkways, on ferries, and many other projects – take a look here:

As a reader I love so much of what their organisation does, so it is with great delight that I announce my shortlisting for the 2023  Red Room Poetry Fellowship.  This is an extensive opportunity designed to foster poetic and professional development of an individual within the wider poetic community and includes a range of commissions, residency, recordings and publication.  The poets who have shortlisted along with me include some of my absolute favourites – writers at the very top of their game – so I am humbled and happy to be among that group and delighted to help promote of all that Red Room does.  The full shortlist can be found here:
