Poetry reading - Grizel Luttman-Johnson and Graeme Ryan


Grizel Luttman-Johnson grew up in Scotland with a lot of sheep and hills and praying. Now in Hartland she has swapped the sheep for bees, the hills for sea, and the prayer for breath. She remains an unrelenting artist, yogi and unschooled poet. She was amazed and delighted to win the Graham Burchell Award for Devon Poets in 2023.

Graeme Ryan, born in St Anne's on Sea, Lancashire. Graeme taught English and Drama in the SW for many years, and is author of seven full-length plays for young people including Heartland, Hope Street and Tracks of the Free. He won the Teignmouth Festival Open Poetry prize in 2018 and collaborated in The Poetry of Unknown Things in 2023. He is a co-chair of Fire River Poets based in Somerset and has read widely across the SW, most recently at Coleridge Cottage in Nether Stowey. His debut poetry collection Valley of the Kings was published in 2022.
