Joelle Taylor and Patience Agbabi

Joelle Taylor's C+nto & Othered Poems, winner of the TS Eliot Poetry Prize 2021, explores sexuality and gender. History, magic, rebellion, party and sermon vibrate through the cantos to uncover underground communities forged by women. Poetry that is lyrical, expansive, imagistic, epic and intimate.

An award-winning poet, author and playwright Joelle's poetry is widely anthologised and she is author of three other poetry collections: Ska Tissue: The Woman Who Was Not There; Songs My Enemy Taught Me. She is a former UK performance poetry slam champion and is founder of the national youth slam championships SLAMbassadors.

Patience Agbabi is former Poet Laureate of Canterbury. Her work has appeared on both radio and TV and she has toured around the world to festivals and events. In 2014 she was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Prize for New Work in Poetry following her fourth collection, Telling Tales.
