Andrew Graves at Retford Library
Andrew Graves regularly performs his work throughout the UK. He has appeared on TV and radio on a number of occasions being featured on 6 Music’s Cerys Mathews Show, Inside Out and the documentary Evidently John Cooper Clarke. His first full collection Light at the end of the Tenner, was published in 2014 and his latest collection God Save the Teen was released last year.
He has performed with the likes of the Sleaford Mods, John Hegley and Henry Normal and has been commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery, BBC Radio 4, Edinburgh International Literature Festival and has recently represented the East Midlands for National Poetry Day.
Often cited as “The hardest working poet in the East Midlands”, his work is raw and gritty, containing a dose of adroit comedy that champions the underdogs and underclass. A truly troubled poet for troubled times.
