This week, I’m welcoming the fab Hilary Walker back to the studio.
Hilary Walker is a Manchester-born poet. She has travelled with Bolton-based poetry performance group Write Out Loud to poetry festivals, including Bordeaux, and on a personal level she has performed in Greenwich Village, New York and more recently this year, in San Francisco.
Recently, she has performed as a featured artist at various local poetry gigs, has made a video/poem with Mark Mace Smith of Thud Dub Films, and has collaborated with her jazz pianist husband, Paul Walker, to produce pieces of piano poetry. In September 2018, Hilary had her first collection of poems published – Saving Lives by Preeta Press.
I’ll be chatting to Hilary about her collection, and about the power of poetry and performance. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
