We're so excited to announce our truly sensational PBS Winter Selections, featuring an electrifying range of established voices from Kathleen Jamie, Carrie Etter, Chris McCabe, Roy McFarlane and John Agard to more emerging talents such as Raymond Antrobus and Sophie Robinson.
For the first time ever, the PBS Choice goes to Raymond Antrobus, whose first full collection is published by the incredible independent press Penned in the Margins.
Raymond Antrobus was born in London, Hackney to an English mother and Jamaican father, and is the author of To Sweeten Bitter and The Perseverance. He is a founding member of 'Chill Pill' and 'Keats House Poets Forum' and the recipient of fellowships from Cave Canem, Complete Works 3 and Jerwood Compton Poetry. He is also one of the world's first recipients of an MA in Spoken Word education from Goldsmiths University. In 2018 he was awarded 'The Geoffrey Dearmer Prize'. Check out this video of Raymond in action.
