Monmouth Group: Publishing Your Poetry with Ben Ray
4 June @ 15:00 - 16:00 BST
Ben Ray talks to the Monmouth Group about life as a poet. Getting your collections, reviews and articles commissioned, performing, one-to-one mentoring, leading poetry groups, through to giving talks and workshops with young people in schools.
Ben Ray is an accomplished young poet and reviewer from the Welsh borders with ‘a fresh and original poetic voice – full of wit, twists, surprises, echoes and challenges’ (Alan Rusbridger, former editor of The Guardian).
Ben is active in the poetry community, whether it’s running virtual online workshops during the Coronavirus crisis, judging the 2020 Cheltenham Poetry Festival single poem competition, or presenting an academic paper on poetry and climate change at the 2019 World Youth Forum: Rights to Dialogue in Italy. His workshops and poetry have also been included in the Living Levels Landscape Partnership with the RSPB, connecting people to the historic landscape of the Gwent Levels in south Wales.
