Elis is a tubby vicar in London, who when not preaching sermons, speaks words about faith, fertility and the frustrations of his own disorganisation. When rare bursts of inspiration come, these work their way into poems. A friend of SproutSpoken founder, Dicky, since the age of 6, Elis is excited to be scraping off the rust at Sprout.
Isabella Mead won the Julian Lennon Poetry Prize (2021), the Bedford International Poetry Competition (2020) and the Wells International Poetry Competition (2019). She was a finalist in the University of Leeds' Brotherton Poetry Prize (2021) judged by Simon Armitage, for which her poems will feature in a forthcoming anthology with Carcanet in 2022. She has been Highly Commended twice in the Bridport Prize (2016 and 2019) and her work has appeared in Magma, Mslexia and Poetry News. A former secondary English teacher in East London, she worked as a teacher trainer in a rural area of Rwanda for two years and is currently Head of Learning at The Story Museum in Oxford.
Natalie is a poet and performer. Her work uses domesticity to explore love, loss, motherhood and what it is to be a woman. She is silly, optimistic, often vulgar and a total romantic. She has just published her first collection ‘Stone’.
SproutSpoken is kindly supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
