Ayup,

My name’s Jamie Thrasivoulou, I’m a Poet, Spoken word artist, Lyricist, and Poetry Educator from sunny old Derbados (Derby).

My work is raw, energetic, authentic, highly politicised and is capable of giving you a good slap around the chops! I’ve been published by Not-So-Popular, Burning House Press, Hand-Job-Zine, The Arsonist, Glove, Rzur Cuts, Low-Light Magazine, Crown House Publications, Here Comes Everyone, Independent Thinking Press and Paper & Ink Zine amongst others.

My first collection The Best Of A Bad Situation was released in May 2017 through Silhouette Press. You can buy it here:

The Best of a Bad Situation – by Jamie Thrasivoulou

I was commissioned to write the poem A Privatised Map Of Deprivation for the award-winning social photographer Jim Mortram’s Small Town Inertia Photography collection, which is available now through Bluecoat Press.

I also have a collaborative music project called Bloque Capitals.

As well as poetry I write fictional narratives and the odd script.

I perform regularly at spoken word events around the country.

I was the Shadow writer in residence for the Writing East Midlands: Write Here Sanctuary project in 2016.

I’ve been producing and hosting Derby’s Premier Spoken Word and Poetry Event Word Wise since September 2016.

As well as writing I run workshops for people of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels.

I’m currently the Writer-In-Residence @HMP Foston Hall, and the lead writer on the ACE funded  Man-Up project with the Stoke based organisation RESTOKE. This project will develop into a play exploring the relationship between masculinity and mental health

In the past I’ve held writing workshops for: Writing East midlands, Derby University,  Sheffield Hallam University, Leicester City Football Club, The Premier league Reading stars, Nottingham Poetry Festival, The National Citizens Service, Derby County Football Club, and many more Schools, Community groups, Educational hubs, Prisons and colleges around the UK.
