Chris Redmond, already well established on the spoken word scene, will debut his collection Let The Pig Out, published by Burning Eye Books, this month.
It is a fusion of performance writing and page poems, mixing story forms with internal rhymes and rhythms and touching on a range of topics including fox racing, fatherhood, rainbows and road kill. Candidly explored with a playful heart, this collection has a compulsion to explore the friction between cynicism and idealism.
Chris Redmond founded and hosts Tongue Fu, which is heralded as "the best poetry night in London". Below is a performance of the poem which gives its name to the collection.
Let the Pig Out is available to buy on our website.
