Join some of the most exciting talent on the UK poetry scene. Five Black British poets explore and celebrate love, life and their Caribbean and African heritage with power, humour and honesty.
Dorothea Smartt is a ‘Brit-born Bajan international’, her work typically bridges Britain and Barbados, effortlessly shuttling between local and global scenes as it weaves a diasporic web. She is the author of two poetry collections, Connecting Medium and Ship Shape.
Kadija Sesay has performed around the world. Her poetry collection Irki was published in 2013 which she toured in the UK, USA, Caribbean and West Africa. She was recently awarded an Arts Council Grant to work on her second poetry collection, The Modern Pan Africanist’s Journey.
Malika Booker was born in the UK to Guyanese and Grenadian parents and first began writing and performing poetry while at Goldsmiths University. As well as her own acclaimed solo work Malika founded the writers’ collective Malika’s Kitchen in 2000. It aims to support “multicultural writers in the development of their craft.”
Patricia Foster is a writer, poet, performer, actress and founder member of highly acclaimed writers’ collective Malika’s Kitchen. Patricia has read poetry and monologues across Europe and the US and has been published in numerous anthologies.
Sai Murray is a writer, poet, spoken word artist, artist and graphic designer. In a former life he worked in advertising… but he has been clean for over 13 years. His first volume of poetry Ad-liberation was published by Peepal Tree Press in September 2013.
