After Channel Four documented Deborah Stevenson's life and her poetry, Charlie Dark referred to her as one of the brightest young voices of literature to emerge from our shores in over two decades. Poetry is Deborah's priority in education, entertainment and survival.
She takes poetry everywhere she goes; from China, building creative bridges with The British Council, to Camden working with UK Youth Parliament, from the Louis Vuitton Maison store, New Bond Street, to The Tate Britain for Chris Ofili's private exhibition opening, from museum objects with the Lyric Lounge, Leicester 09, to a blend of funky house at The World Free Running Championships.
Poetry has also been a tool to spread her faith in young people, faith that was shared amongst the 6000 people that attended Turning Point Festival 09, which Deborah hosted and helped put together with a comity of 14-25 year olds. Now, Deborah is in the East Midlands, co-facilitating workshops and providing a bridge between Nottingham community and higher education for The Lyric Lounge. She is also working with Worksop Library to create a Poetry Slam and is on the cusp of providing a number of events and projects to get more young people in the East Midlands writing, performing and communicating.
