Lunchtime spoken word from Desree

From 1 April the StAnza 2021 festival content on this page is no longer available. 

Alas, we can’t offer Stuart the Baker’s pies with this year’s poetry café events, but we do have some amazingly powerful spoken word for you to enjoy with your lunch at home. Having graduated in Drama Studies, Desree is very familiar with the stage. Her work explores intersectionality, justice and social commentary, occasionally throwing in a f*ckboypoem.And if the final day of the festival feels way too long to wait to hear Desree, by way of a preview, you can check out her filmpoem, Call It Ours, one of StAnza’s micro-commissions from summer 2020.

Just return to this webpage to view the event, which will be captioned and remain available to watch until 31 March.

Books by festival poets are available here, with profits going to St Andrews bookshop J & G Innes.

Participants: Desree
Desree: Moses Baako
