Join our recently appointed Poet in Residence, Anthony Hett, for a 'drop in' poetry writing session where you will use photos of yourself or images of Keats as prompts for your writing. In September, Anthony will host a special event to share the work that he has written during his residency and encourage new writers who have joined him at these ‘drop in’ sessions to perform their work to the invited audience.
Anthony is a London-based Welsh poet and director; he has been a Keats House Poet since 2010 and performed regularly at the House. During his residency he will visit Keats House on a weekly basis to find inspiration for his first collection of poems, provisionally titled Pictures of Me. This collection will be a selection of autobiographical poetry, prompted and inspired by photographs taken of himself between the ages of 0 and 33. Each poem will be presented in chronological order, alongside the photograph which inspired it.
