AUTHOR INFORMATION

JOEL DUNCAN

Joel Duncan is a bright new talent who has been making a meteoric rise to become a regular performer at poetry venues in West Yorkshire and beyond.  He was the winner of a contest in 2014 to discover and appoint a Young Persons’ Poet Laureate for Calderdale, under the mentoring of Gez Walsh, and his first collection of poems,  My Last Everything, appeared in October 2015, including being named in the roundup of books of the year in the Yorkshire Post.

Joel is also an advocate for the place of poetry in education, pointing out with considerable justification the difference that poetry and writing has made to his own life.
