The First Official Poet Laureate for Lambeth
October 27th, 2022 history was made. I became the first officially Poet Laureate for Lambeth. We had the launch event in Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre. We launched it as part of the Southbank Literature festival where I was accompanied by an audience of friends, family, supporters who have followed my journey so far and the team at Lambeth. I collected my certificate and the Poet Laurate award, this was followed by my speech and a performance.
