I’m Evrah Rose, an injustice driven poet and spoken word performer hailing from Wrexham, North Wales.
My poetry is a fusion of no-nonsense realism, social injustice and hard-hitting truths offering the reader and audience a thought-provoking experience.
I began writing around the age of 8, poetry enabled me to vocalise the serious issues I was facing and provided me with an outlet in my teens when I needed it the most. Now, I use my poetry to speak for those without a voice.
I have headlined various shows across the North West including Wrexfest and Apples and Snakes DiVerse #7 and performed alongside acts such as Sabrina Benaim.
I was recently commissioned by Home-Start York to write a piece of poetry for and feature in their latest ad campaign focussed on social isolation in young mothers.
I am so proud to say that I am resident poet at the amazing Wrexham Afc, a club that is vastly becoming one of the most progressive and previous resident poet at Ty Pawb in Wrexham. A place I define as the hub of the town.
I am currently a contributor for BBC Sesh, writing and recording spoken word films for their social media site.
My work has been featured online at BBC Two, BBC Three, BBC Four and BBC Wales and most recently on BBC Wales News on television. Four of my tracks, ‘Didn’t Mean to Hurt Her’ and ‘Labyrinth’, ‘If God Were a Woman’ and ‘I am’ have been featured on the Adam Thomas Walton show on BBC Radio Wales as part of BBC Introducing.
My debut poetry collection is now available for pre order, you can grab your copy at Verve Poetry Press.
Poetry will always be my therapy.
