Creative Future hosted a free event ‘Meet the Writer: Dean Atta.’ Our ‘Meet the Artist/Writer’ series showcases writers and artists from under-represented backgrounds and how they got their work ‘out there’.
As a writer, performer and teacher of poetry, Dean Atta has worked across the UK and internationally. He came to poetry as a personal therapeutic tool but soon found his words resonated with many people when he started performing at open mic nights in London. Dean has published one full collection of poetry and is currently working on his second. This session will be a discussion about the personal and public purpose of poetry, publishing and performing your work.
