The Details...

SproutSpoken is delighted to welcome Joelle Taylor, hot on the heels of her T.S. Eliot Prize win for her book C+nto – described by Chair of Judges Glyn Maxwell as “a blazing book of rage and light”.

An award-winning poet and author, Joelle completed a world tour prior to the pandemic with her collection Songs My Enemy Taught Me. She founded SLAMbassadors, the UK national youth poetry slam championships, as well as the international spoken-word project Borderlines. She is widely anthologised, the author of 4 collections of poetry and is currently completing her debut collection of inter-connecting short stories The Night Alphabet. 

Her new poetry collection C+NTO & Othered Poems was published in June 2021 and is the subject of the Radio 4 arts documentary Butch. It won the T.S Eliot Prize and has been named by The Telegraph, the New Statesman, The White Review & Times Literary Supplement as one of the best poetry books of 2021. It's also listed as DIVA magazine’s Book of the Month, and awarded 5 stars by the Morning Star. She has received a Changemaker Award from the Southbank Centre, a Fellowship of the RSA, and her poem Valentine was Highly Commended in the Forward Prize. 

She is a co-curator and host of Out- Spoken Live, the UK’s premier poetry and music club currently resident at the Southbank Centre. She is the commissioning editor at Out-Spoken Press 2020-2022.
