Pete Ramskill

Pete Ramskill is a poet, artist, illustrator, designer and sculptor.

Pete used to perform regularly on Terry Christian’s Radio Derby show and has also performed at the the Edinburgh Festival for BBC Radio 4. He also appeared on BBC 3’s Whine Gums poetry series. He has also performed at poetry and cabaret venues all over the UK including The Nottingham Poetry Festival.

Pete has had three books of poems published; ‘Strike’ (Derby Cooperative Press) and ‘Personal Vendetta’ (Amazing Collosal Press as John Bitumen). His latest is Selected Moments of Machine Life (Flapjack Press).

He is currently working on an illustrated book of selected poems by Henry Normal taken from his Instagram page @henrynormalpoetry

It’s no coincidence that Pete Ramskill is also a stone carver, he brings the same tools to his poetry – a hammer and chisel…

Henry Normal

Henry is a writer, poet and TV and Film producer and co-founder of the Nottingham Poetry Festival. In  2017 he was honoured with a special BAFTA for services to Television. Henry has 9 poetry collections in print and has a regular show on BBC Radio 4.

“Idiosyncratic and effortlessly funny” – Radio Times

“Bittersweet poetry with a sublimely observant wit” – Guardian

He was recently given a honorary doctorate of letters by Nottingham Trent University, another by University of Nottingham, and has had a beer and a bus named after him in Nottingham!
