RALPH DARTFORD is now our headliner for the November Bad Language.
Ralph is a founder of spoken word collective A Firm Of Poets. Their anthology Holding Your Hand Through Hard Times will be made into a film next year (it even has a trailer). Ralph’s first Collection, ‘Cigarettes, Beer and Love‘ is published by Ossett Observer Presents. Here are some words about it.
“A book that is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside, just beautiful, no, really beautiful.” Ian McMillan
“I’m reading your book. I like the poem about the old folks … and the pictures.” John Hegley
“A strong collection of poems that feel like they might have been whispered with whisky stained teeth under the light of a single candle.” Now Then Magazine
Ralph writes narrative poems from the heart. Sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet, sometimes as sad as a lost dog. Come see. Join the Facebook event here.
Here’s our amazing open mic selection this month:
