Luke Wright is the author of two collections of poetry, two verse plays, and ten spoken word shows. He is the winner of a Fringe First Award for new writing, a Stage Award for acting, and a Saboteur Award for spoken word. For over a decade he has co-programmed the biggest spoken word line-ups in Britain, at Latitude and Port Eliot festivals, bringing together hundreds of poets for an annual summertime party. He lives in Suffolk with his two sons.
Pamphlet Description. With one eye on social media and another on mental well-being, Luke Wright looks under the hood of a spluttering nation. Eschewing the formal verse structures of his previous two collections, Wright presents free-wheeling splenetic poems on the joys of pretentiousness, late-night carb-heavy FOMO, and the lay-bys and bypasses of a country that ‘doesn’t make anything anymore.’ Shout these poems aloud in pubs, or whisper them in B&Bs. Keep an eye on the ones you love.
