Featured poet:

Gerry Clarkson (Guerrilla Lips)

A graduate in International Journalism, Gerry describes himself as a grass roots poet with an introspective global perspective, who delivers “searing” bullets of truth with an often brutal, but always beautiful honesty. Of mixed African/Caribbean heritage, Gerry grew up on a suburban council estate in Liverpool, which has influenced his writing. His work covers topics such as race and ethnicity, gender and perceptions of masculinity as well as exploring issues influencing our current social and political climate from a very personal perspective.

Wigan poet George Melling described Gerry as, “An exciting new breed of poet who will raise you to the rafters then slowly bring you back down to earth before delivering his coup-de-grace.” And claimed he was left “shaking” after attending one of his performances.
