Vanessa Kisuule is a rising star of British poetry. She has won several slams including Farrago School’s Out Slam Champion 2010, Poetry Rivals 2011, Next Generation Slam 2012, and SLAMbassadors 2010. She has performed at Glastonbury, Lounge on the Farm, Secret Garden Party Wilderness and Shambala Festivals. In 2013 she was voted Best Performance Poet in Sabotage Reviews’ Saboteur Awards and the inaugural South West Poetry Awards.

Vanessa combines warm humour with beautifully measured emotion and a sprinkling of bite. There is a depth and maturity to her work that is remarkable for such a young poet (Vanessa is not yet 25). The most prevalent commendation from voters in the 2013 Saboteur awards was for her uncanny knack of expressing the inexpressible or as one voter put it, she has “the ability to articulate feelings previously considered ineffable; a skill as rare as it is wonderful”.

‘I have heard these poems read by Vanessa at parties and cafes, on boats and in bars and I am so excited I can now hear them again, as many times as I want, because listening once, twice, three times, is just not enough. Her words make the world exciting again.’
Hollie McNish

‘Vanessa Kisuule is an explosion wrapped in ribbon. One of the most powerful performers of her generation, watching Kisuule on stage is like witnessing the origins of the universe. If the universe had a filthy mouth. And furious heels’
Joelle Taylor, The Poetry Society

‘Beyonce of the poetry world. KILLING IT.’
Lindsay Russell, Blue Peter Presenter
