Benjamin Zephaniah may describe himself as ‘just a normal bloke who writes poems’ but his position as one of the UK’s most important contemporary poets belies this modesty. His achievements are many and from nomination for Poet Laureate, 13 honorary degrees, to advising prime ministers on education policy, Benjamin has been at the forefront of the literary scene since the 1980s. His involvement in Word In Motion is key and we’re delighted he is lending his weight to the project.
