More About Me...

Keith Jarrett lives and works in London. Poet and fiction writer, he is currently a PhD scholar at Birkbeck, University of London, where he is completing his first novel, exploring the migration of religion from the Caribbean to London.

Keith is a former UK Poetry Slam Champion; he also won the International Slam Championship at FLUPP in Rio. His short stories have appeared in anthologies and magazines, including Attitude and Tell Tales IV, with influences ranging from Caribbean trickster figures to Latin American surrealism.

His monologue, Safest Spot in Town, was performed at the Old Vic and on BBC Four in 2017 as part of the Queers series. His book of poetry, Selah, was also published last year with Burning Eye. 

Keith has set up poetry workshops for schools and taught Spanish at Primary level (KS2). He was one of six initial Spoken Word Educator trainees teaching at a secondary school in East London while researching Creative Education for an MA at Goldsmiths; the project was the first of its kind in Europe.
