Breaking Ground – Black British Writers US Tour

The Breaking Ground tour list consists of five prose writers, five poets. All of the artists present a vast range of themes in their work and many are multi-genre writers, combining poetry and playwriting, for example. We have paid particular attention to balancing gender and age and to presenting both new and established names to audiences.

The ten tour writers are:

Diran Adebayo – Jay Bernard – Bernardine Evaristo – Gabriel Gbadamosi – Colin Grant
Nick Makoha – Karen McCarthy Woolf – Johny Pitts – Roger Robinson – Warsan Shire

(click each name to find out more about the individual writers)

We are about to take Breaking Ground back to the USA for the second part of the tour, starting in April 2016.
