Sharing the stage with young poets, will be the mighty Joelle Taylor. Joelle Taylor is an award winning poet. A former UK slam champion, she founded the national youth slam championships. Her latest collection is Songs My Enemy Taught Me.
“Fearless. This is poetry with purpose” Benjamin Zephaniah on Joelle Taylor.
