The 2016 festival begins with a bang with the return to Exeter of Hannah Silva, poet, playwright and performer known for her innovative explorations of form, voice and language in performance. Her debut poetry collection Forms of Protest (Penned in the Margins, 2013) has been widely praised and was Highly Commended in the Forward Prizes. She won the Tinniswood Award for Best Radio Drama Script with her verse play Marathon Tales (co-written with Colin Teevan for BBC Radio 3) and has been shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry for Total Man.
Hannah will be appearing with two luminaries of the Exeter performance poetry scene, Tim King and Mantie Lister. Tim, slam and festival performer, co-hosts the popular monthly Taking the Mic event in Exeter Phoenix; Mantie has a growing performance reputation and is a former Bard of Exeter.
