Workshop Description
There is nothing a Brit can't get away with, and it's not just the accent. Preaching to the choir is boring. It's easy. How do you turn your biggest detractors into the ones snapping loudest at your lines? Push boundaries, push uncomfortable truths, push your audience. With satire, we can say anything. Looking at the work of some of the most successful British poets (Gerry Potter, Anna Freeman and others), we'll take on everything we're not supposed to talk about. Be ready to write.


Keith Jarrett lives in London, England. A former London and UK poetry slam champion, he writes performance poetry and short fiction and teaches as part of a pioneering Spoken Word Educator programme. He is also working on his first novel, a tale written partly in verse.  

Sophia Walker is an internationally touring poet and teaching artist. She is the 2013 BBC GrandSlam Champion, winner of the 2012 London Poetry Olympics, 2012 Edinburgh International Book Festival Slam and is a former Scottish National Slam Champion.
