Brenda Read-Brown is one of the best-known slam poets in the UK. She has performed in Texas, Denmark, the middle of the Atlantic and the House of Lords, and at many festivals, on Radio 4, and in a large number of low dives. She has published two collections: Arbitrary Edges (2013) and Like Love (V Press, 2018), and was elected Gloucestershire Poet Laureate in 2012. Brenda works with cancer patients and carers, prisoners, schoolchildren and the very old, and finds her greatest rewards in helping other people find their words.
