Artist profile

Gary Carr

As a poet I write for the page, for display and for performance. I have performed at venues across the East and West Midlands and by invitation in both York and Leeds. Twenty five of my pieces have been published, including eight prizewinning poems. One of the founder members of the highly successful Runaway Writers’ group I also run a monthly spoken word night “Spoken Worlds” in Burton-on-Trent.
