MEGAN BAXTER

Megan is a South West based poet, currently studying for an MA in Writing for Young People. She's performed feature & headline sets around the South West at nights like Milk & Raise the Bar.

 

The recent recipient of the Dragonfly Prize for Potential from The Magdalena Young Poets' Prize

 

Once described by world slam champion Buddy Wakefield as "adorable in an I’ll-fuck-you-up kind of way."

 

Her debut chapbook is out this April

"Studying poetry at university allows you to grow a lot as a page poet but I would love to stretch myself more in the aspect of performance, to be taught the skills that can allow you to fill a room with not just words but a stage presence that artists like Kat Francois for example are so known for."

BODY IN TROUBLE

a body in trouble grapples with an internal void that can't be silenced. it seeks something it cannot name in the worst places. it needs tenderness and understanding. it needs you to come into its bedroom, sit down beside it and listen.
