Shadow People speak out …

by Martin Glynn

 

Real Talk…

Shadow People speak out: is a collection of monologues which has been a long time in the making.  For many years Martin Glynn has worked in prisons, engaged with the disaffected sections of the community, and has been through his own rite of passage. Throughout his journey as a writer and criminologist he has encountered many amazing people whose stories have gone with them to their grave, have not been told, been ignored, or have been too uncomfortable for many to hear.

CELEBRATE WHA?

Thursday 22 September 2011: 7.30pm

£5 (£3)

In the Studio

Ten Black British Poets from the West Midlands Edited by Eric Doumerc and Roy McFarlane (Birmingham Poet Laureate 2011)

Celebrate Wha? is an anthology of poems about identity and race, curry goat ‘n’ rice.  Ten poets – Dreadlock Alien, Sue Brown, Marcia Calame, Evoke, Martin Glynn, Michelle Hubbard, Kokumo, Roy McFarlane, Chester Morrison and Moqapi Selassie – explore what it means to be black and British and from the West Midlands.  This is the English language in a Caribbean coat, Auden in a Creole accent.  Celebrate Wha? celebrates writing with a reggae rhythm, born out of a heady mixture of dub, grime and performance poetry, politics and music, anger and laughter.   Join us for the official launch of an anthology dedicated to Birmingham’s Black poets – long overdue.  Read more about the anthology here…
