Since the beginning of May 2020, we’ve been hosting weekly Insta sessions with guests from all over the UK and further afield. These relaxed 30-minute sessions blend performance with insightful conversations from leading and emerging poets.
Up next, we welcome Romina Ramos! Romina is a gender-fluid Portuguese poet living in England. She is about to graduate with a BA in creative writing from the University of Bolton, where she has been developing her poetry for the last three years. Prior to this Romina trained and worked as a chef for 10 years and had no experience in the poetry world.
Recently, Romina has had her work published in The Bolton Review, showcased on SoHo radio, and been shortlisted for the Merky Books New Writers’ Prize. In the future, Romina hopes to work in the community to not only make poetry more accessible to everyone but to encourage the youth of today to use poetry and other creative endeavours as an outlet to deal with different issues, including but not limited to mental health and poverty.
This session will be hosted by Matt Abbott. Our previous sessions are available to stream back in full on our Facebook page, YouTube channel and IGTV channel. Find more information and share the event over on Facebook. Our recent session with Joe Williams is available to view below.
