Inkandescent serves up sensational spoken word with a side of music. Host Nathan Evans is joined by UK Poetry Slam champion Keith Jarrett (Selah) and the TS Eliot and Polari Prize winning Joelle Taylor (C+nto & Othered Poems and Songs My Enemy Taught Me). Plus we team up with our friends at Universal Erection to present two brilliant emerging poets.
‘Taylor’s poetry roars and soars’ —Bernardine Evaristo
‘Jarrett’s poems are songs that testify, praise and pray. This black British voice is relevant and necessary’—Malika Booker
‘Evans’ poetry addresses vital issues of our time with biting wit and seething passion’—Matthew Todd
‘It’s high time for forward-thinking new publishers like Inkandescent, who are publishing something different, out of the mainstream and giving new voices a chance’—Kit de Waal
