Lyrically Justified: About the Urban Word Collective

In its own words, the Urban Word Collective was born out of a dream of a shared space where urban poets could promote, celebrate and inspire eachother for the benefit of their communities and ultimately the country - a tree with roots, that propagates, that seeds for the present and the future.

To date, they've produced three anthologies of poems, and I'm really proud to have two poems in the third, which features West Country writers, not least because in terms of its cultural and artistic diversity and its ambition, this project is different from anything I've been involved with before. I don't think my writing has ever been in such interesting, dynamic company. 

Here is the book. Please find out more about this initiative and support it.
