READING – TIM KING AND GRAEME RYAN BOOK HERE
Tim King is one of the Southwest’s top Spoken Word performers. His work ranges from the brutally honest to the deeply poignant via some clever and quirky wordplay. Tim hosts Taking The Mic, a monthly Spoken Word event at the Phoenix Arts Centre in Exeter, and is a champion of young writers, leading workshops in schools and encouraging new talent onto the stage.
Graeme Ryan is a drama teacher, playwright and poet. He lives in Somerset and is a popular leader of creative writing groups. Graeme won last year’s Teignmouth Open Poetry Competition and his dramatic performance in the Festival’s mini-slam won him our invitation to present a wider range of his poetry.
