This week, my guest is the brill Benjamin Guilfoyle.
Benjamin is a woolly hat wearing performance poet. His unique brand of wonderfully warm, woolly and often silly words has seen him headline poetry nights all across the North of England. His poetry covers all bases from ‘cinema eaters’ to the life teachings of Brian Blessed. In 2015 he self-published his first poetry pamphlet, Level Up, and is currently working on his first poetry collection, Please Insert Disk 2, which is due to be released at some point in 2019.Benjamin loves nothing more than to perform his poetry to a live audience and in 2019 is taking his poetry on the road with ‘The Wandering Poet Tour’.
I’ll be chatting to Benjamin about his writing, performance and tour on this week’s show. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
