★ The Archbishop Presents: Matt Haysom, Canterbury Poet

For the past few months, I’ve been work­ing with a char­ity that helps people get back on their feet. One such chap is Matt Haysom. He writes poetry that encom­passes many things, includ­ing the exper­i­ence of sleep­ing rough, and now we’ve put togeth­er a web­site to show­case his stuff. It would be great if you could check it out and leave a com­ment. He’s new to blog­ging, so some friendly feed­back would be ideal.

He’s a good, grow­ing poet, but don’t just take my word for it. No less a per­son­age than the Archbishop of Canterbury has lauded his poetry.

I’d recom­mend check­ing out his ‘West End Dreams’ (these aren’t the usu­al west end dreams) in the writ­ten form and this video, which was pro­duced by stu­dents at the University of Kent.
