Who I am. As far as I am aware.
Adrian B Earle is a Poet, Playwright , Facilitator and storyteller; Host and Producer of the Verse First Poetry Podcast,
He creates work, promotes and develops the poetry of others because of his belief that society is comprised of the stories we tell and the modes in which we tell them. Only by the marginalised taking ownership of their stories can society be changed for the better… but that’s just a theory.
He is an MA Creative writer at Birmingham City University and a spoken word poet who performs under the name Think/Write/Fly.
Adrian likes to focus his poems on the patterns in our modes of speech, our evolving relationships to each other and what it means to be part of the ‘other’ in an age of technology that amplifies some and silences others.
He likes to build new poetic forms and break others. collaborating with fine artists to make artefacts out of his poems and poetry from pieces of art in order to poke at the boundary lines between visual, audible and written artistic expression. most recently he has been experimenting with the use of recording and audio sequencing technology to create narrative bin-aural performance poems designed for performance in darkness.
