The Poets of Colour Incubator is a 12-month programme offering mentoring, change agency opportunities and creative development to three talented and emerging poets of colour, of all ages with a lower limit of 18, living in the North of England at a crucial stage of their practice.
An additional five shortlisted poets will receive career signposting, professional guidance and be part of a community of practice.
A collaboration between Manchester Poetry Library at Manchester Metropolitan University and Words of Colour, the Incubator aims to provide vital support to emerging poets of colour living in the North of England to develop new work that speaks to their lived experience and authentic selves and their ability to build sustainable careers.
Each of the three successful Incubator poets will receive a £6,000 Creative Action Bursary to innovate their practice and create dynamic new work in response to a global challenge they want to explore.
