Writer's Diary

Word Wise #61
Robert Steventon

The Maypole, Brook Street, Derby,
30th Sept

robert steventon “Rob Steventon achieves with his poetry the aims so often laid out by poetry people, but too rarely achieved.

Our aim as performance poets should always be to be better than what our audience could be watching on telly. Robert Steventon is better than telly.”
