White House Poetry Revival Wed 23rd Sept 2009

White House Poetry Revival
Wed 23rd Sept. 2009 9.00pm

This weeks guest poet is Bernadette Cremin.

Bernadette Cremin was the outright winner of the 2005 Biscuit Publishing “Challenge” themed poetry competition. Perfect Mess is her prize award collection. Bernadette lives in Brighton, and has won a Year Of The Artist award, a performance poetry bursary and been published in the UK and Eire. Alongside solo commissions Bernadette has collaborated with a music producer (State Art), a film-maker (Indifference Productions) a photographer (ProjectPoetry) and a geneticist (Promise of Threat). Her collection Speechless (Waterloo Press) followed in 2007.
Bernadette has previously worked as a social worker, tea lady, sociology lecturer, TEFL teacher, bank clerk and waitress. This chequered and eclectic career path has invaluably enriched her true vocation of poet and performer.
