Finding the Words: Poetry from Char March, David Wilson & Katie Greenbrown
Char March is a multi-award-winning poet, and a rip-roaring performer of her work. She's a genius at accents, and evokes – with panache and poignancy – the multitude of characters in her poems. Her credits include: five poetry collections including ‘Full Stops In Winter Branches’, a collection of 13 of her award-winning short stories, six BBC Radio 4 plays, nine stage plays and two screenplays.
David Wilson lives in North Yorkshire. He was led to poetry by a chance encounter with a stunning poem (Midsummer, Tobago by Derek Walcott) on the wall of a hospital waiting room. He then found poetry to be a form particularly suited to writing about the climbing experience. He has climbed extensively in the UK, Alps and further afield. David chose The Equilibrium Line as the title for his latest collection because the poems are preoccupied with what it means to find balance: on rock and ice, within ourselves, and within threatened mountain environments that are melting in front of our eyes.
Katie Greenbrown is a York-based spoken word poet with a keen interest in telling stories and collaborating with visual artists and musicians. She’s a Say Owt Slam winner, York Culture Awards winner and has supported both Kate Fox and Hollie McNish live. Her work has been included in a number of anthologies, including The Result is What You See Today by Smith | Doorstop. She is also the first poet to be included in York Open Studios under their 2020 bursary scheme for performers.
