Poets of the Demon Crew

Poems from the Demon Crew were living and breathing projects. Shannan Mitchener started the event by introducing her collection of poetry, Meaningless Deconstruction. Her subject is depression and mental health.
Jenny Brooks' Laughing Gas uses multiple perspectives to tell the story of a boy who has a lung transplant. The collection takes a journey through his illness and experience of surgery.
Alicja Walendziak's Herbata is a trip into the culture of Poland. The collection of poems in the booklet and the ones that the writer performed gave me an insight into the human condition as well as the similarities between Britain and Poland.
