This week, my guest is the fab Ged Austin.
Known at the ‘Urban Poet’, Ged has been described as one of the best homeless outreach workers in the country, working on Manchester’s streets. He has done little poetry workshops over four years in the doorways, alleyways and squats of Manchester’s streets, encouraging the homeless to have a voice through writing their own poetry about life and how they feel. This has resulted in Ged buying and collecting 75 different pieces of poetry from homeless people in Manchester.
I’ll be talking to Ged about his work and writing on this week’s show. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
