Who? Carol Watts?

Carol Watts, Northampton bread poet, graced us with her presence at DMU to give us an insight into her multi-media poetry.

Carol Watts is inspirational to young writers not just by merit of the content of her work, but also a true champion of "new media" formats. Transforming writing into art and videos is no easy task, but Carol's gamble pays off and is sure to fascinate writers of all ages and disciplines.

One specific part that captivated me and caught my eye was the musicality of the pieces. It really did bring the event to life. Not only did she include the audience, but she even sang a few lines for us. The tone, the rhythm and the melody was magnificent.

I know now Carol Watts to be phenomenal poet who really did give us all something to think about: that no matter who you are, what you do, or where you are, inspiration is all around us.
