ARTS CAFÉ: Rowed Seating. Arrive early to guarantee a seat. Please contact us if you have specific access requirements.
In 2001, Brenda Read-Brown gave up a secure career as a project manager to be a poet; it seemed a good idea at the time. Since then she’s won many poetry slams, and performed her poetry on Radio 4, and in Texas, Denmark, lots of festivals, and any number of low dives. She is the current Gloucestershire Poet Laureate, and has published a collection of her poems, called Arbitrary edges; her new collection, Like love, is due out soon. She’s also a prizewinning playwright. So far, she seems to be getting away with it all, but she’s sure she’ll be found out some day soon.
