A Lovely Word with The Repeat Beat Poet

Thu 6 May 2021

The Repeat Beat Poet is Peter deGraft-Johnson (PJ), a Hip Hop Poet and broadcaster fusing traditional poetics and Hip Hop culture to capture and extend moments of time, thought, and feeling. PJ has performed across the UK and internationally at venues including the Southbank Centre and Ronnie Scotts in London, performing alongside writers like Margaret Atwood, Salena Godden, and Roger Robinson. 

He is also the co-founder of the Hip Hop open mic night Pen-Ting, a house emcee with Hip Hop label and jam night Imaginary Millions, and creator of the Spoken Word radio show #TheRepeatBeatBroadcast and the host of multi-award nominated Lunar Poetry Podcast, which is archived in the British Library.

Peter has been nominated for a Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowship, selected by BBC 1Xtra and the Roundhouse for their Words First and Roundhouse Poetry Collective programmes, and is an Obsidian Foundation fellow. He is published by Magma Poetry, Bad Betty Press, and Poetry On The Picket Line, and his debut single This That was released in 2020 to rave reviews.

Why not kick back for a night on Zoom this May, and join Alex, Lyndsay and the regulars at A Lovely Word for some poetry and fun.

The evening will start with a 20 minute headline slot, then headliner Q&A, then open mic poets.

This event is broadcast over Zoom and Facebook Live.
The Zoom link will be available the day before the performance (5th May) here.
Facebook Live will happen here.
