Posted on October 22 2018
Join us on the 23rd November at St Martin within Ludgate for the PBS Winter Showcase No One Is An Island for a chance to hear the electrifying Raymond Antrobus and David Harsent perform a collage of poems from the 17th century to the present. Here is a taster of Raymond Antrobus in action...
Raymond Antrobus was born in Hackney, London to an English mother and Jamaican father. He is the recipient of fellowships from Cave Canem, Complete Works III and Jerwood Compton Poetry. He is one of the world’s first recipients of an MA in Spoken Word Education from Goldsmiths, University of London. Raymond is a founding member of Chill Pill and the Keats House Poets Forum. He has had multiple residencies in deaf and hearing schools around London, as well as Pupil Referral Units. In 2018 he was awarded the Geoffrey Dearmer Award by the Poetry Society (judged by Ocean Vuong). Raymond currently lives in London and spends most his time working nationally and internationally as a freelance poet and teacher.
