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. The themes for upcoming workshops are:

  • 5 May: Poetry, Spoken Word and Mental Health
  • 12 May: Writing for Protest
  • 19 May: ‘Building back better’ – visions for after the pandemic
  • 26 May: Open mic
  • 2 June: The Importance of Hope

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