Poet in digital residence

Matt Sowerby is Church Action on Poverty's poet in digital residence during the coronavirus pandemic.

Here’s Matt performing ‘Breadlines’, the poem he wrote for our End Hunger campaign.

Through the pandemic, Matt is helping Church Action on Poverty’s partners and supporters to respond creatively to the impact of the virus and lockdown, with weekly workshops and inspirational online performances.

Workshops happen every Tuesday at 3:30pm.

Join us for a workshop – or just read and watch some of the poetry that’s been produced so far! 

Matt is compiling a book of the poems that have been written by people taking part in the workshops. If you have a poem to share, you can submit it using the link below.
