Desert Island Poems with Luke Wright
Spoken word poet Luke Wright returns to Bury St Edmunds to discuss the poems he would take with him on a desert island.
In conversation with fellow poet Alex Davies, Luke will talk about his favourite poems, how they have influenced him as a writer and in his twenty year career as a performer at literary and arts festivals around the world. Luke will also perform a set of his own poems.
Luke has written and performed ten spoken word shows and two verse plays and published five books of his poetry. This year also sees him release an album, Twenty, available both on vinyl and digitally.
Desert Island Poems is an annual event organised by the Suffolk Poetry Society. Previous participants have been literary elder statesman Ronald Blyth, TV’s antiques expert Bunny Campione and Terry Waite. The Suffolk Poetry Society is particularly pleased that Luke Wright, who is a patron of the society, has agreed to be this year’s castaway.
