Healing Poetry

Arts Council England

From 1 December 2014 - 30 November 2015 Chris undertook a highly successful tour of the UK, ‘Healing Poetry’ supported by Arts Council England; during which he delivered a number of workshops: Poetry as Healing, Poetry Performance and Poetry and Art, as well as giving a series of performances of his work.

"Chris is very knowledgeable and informative’ ‘An excellent facilitator’ ’Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, extremely empowering"

"A brilliant poet"

"Very informative and inspiring"


"Fascinating insight into poetry performance. Chris very engaging. Excellent event."

"Very informative, thought provoking and enjoyable"

"Fantastic event. Mindblowing!"

Swindon Literature Festival

"He read and then offered up the stage to the audience to read their poems. Chris gave performance tips and advice.
His asides and introductions to the poems were funny and dry...strange and quite wonderful. Chris offered good, sensitive advice and I was impressed with Chris’ handling of all the readers."
Hilary Sheehan, Festival Chronicle.
