Danny 'Craft D' Pandolfi and I have been chosen as Bristol's artists-in-residence for Boat Poets 2018. Funded by Arts Council England and produced by Hannah Nicholls, Boat Poets aims to support young poets and spoken word artists in creating new material inspired by their local river. Within our residency week, the artists from London, Plymouth and Bristol met at the South Bank Centre and were given a tour of the South Bank's relationship with the Thames by Chris McCabe at the National Poetry Library. We then toured our material written on the residency at Ocean Studios, Plymouth with Toby Campion and at a live streamed Tongue Fu event at Arnolfini in Bristol on National Poetry Day.
