We are proud to announce that our speaker for this year’s AGM will be George Chopping. He is a poet who lives on a narrow boat with his wife and cat. His debut collection, Smoking With Crohn’s was published by UNBOUND in August 2012. He is currently working on his second collection. George has performed in a number of classrooms whilst facilitating workshops with children as young as five up to mature students at university of sixty. He has performed on stages and park benches all over the country. From the Edinburgh Fringe to the Stand Comedy Club in Glasgow; with numerous stints at art centres, small theatres and dark dingey pubs inbetween. Here are a few reviews of his work on both page and stage.

“Had the audience in hysterics” THE SUNDAY TIMES

“A perfectly balanced mixture of sweet-natured observation and steel melting bile” NIGHTSHIFT Music Magazine

“Droll and witty poetry delivered in amusingly deadpan style” THE OXFORD TIMES

“One of Unbound’s raw talents, and as quickly becomes obvious, a true performance poet” MANCHESTER LITERATURE FESTIVAL BLOG

“The cream of Devon poets” JOHN HEGLEY
