Headlined by RICK DOVE…

Mixed-race and neuro-divergent poet and storyteller. His work explores themes of identity, philosophy and social justice using a blend of traditional, modern, and free verse styles, in order to interrogate the liminal spaces that define our common humanity.

Rick has had poems published by The Guardian, Untitled Writers, Arachne Press, Nine Pens Press, and The Morning Star. His debut full collection, Tales From the Other Box, was published in August 2020 by Burning Eye Books and he was dubbed “one to watch” by 2019 TS Eliot Prize winner Roger Robinson.

He was crowned the Hammer & Tongue National Poetry Slam Champion 2021 at the Royal Albert Hall on 4th July 2021.

Plus our monthly Open Mic Poetry Slam: Got a new poem or some rap bars you want to share? This is a friendly, welcoming slot open to all regardless of previous experience. Winner gets a paid set at the next Born Lippy. To enter email or send a DM to our FB: @bornlippyne or Insta: @bornlippyne
