Poetry at Talk of the Town

Stella Katsardi London Center Coordinator


March 30, 2022

Our next Talk of the Town is right around the corner with an amazing guest! Keith Jarret, a spoken word performer who returns with some new funny and moving poems about being black and queer in London.

Performance, poet, writer, playwright, educator, Keith has published a variety of works in both English and Spanish. His work explores Black British and Caribbean history, religion, and sexuality, by providing his audience with “clever, insightful, humorous, and humbling” performances of his poems as Three Weeks describes. 

A well-established career that has received many recognitions, with him being crowned as UK Poetry Slam! Champion and FLUPP International Poetry Slam Winner. His poetry show, Identity Mix-Up (2013), premiered and received 5 stars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Keith was also selected as one of Val McDermid’s ten outstanding LGBTQI+ writers in the UK for the International Literary Showcase. Not only that, BBC Four’s ‘Queers’ series has filmed his play “Safest Spot in Town”, which was performed at the Old Vic. His work can be considered both inspiring and thought-provoking. His appearances at Talk of the Town are not to be missed!
