Jamie Thrasivoulou is a Poet, Spoken word artist, Lyricist, and Poetry Educator. His work is raw, energetic, authentic, highly politicised and gives you a good slap around the chops! His work has been published by Not-So-Popular, Burning House Press, Hand-Job-Zine, The Arsonist and Paper & Ink Zine amongst others. His first collection “The Best Of A Bad Situation” will be released in May 2017 through Silhouette Press. He was recently 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 forthcoming through Bluecoat Press.

Jamie also writes fictional narratives and the odd script. He performs regularly at spoken word events around the country, and is the Shadow writer in residence for the Writing East Midlands: Write Here Sanctuary project. He also runs and hosts Derby’s Premier Spoken Word and Poetry Event “Word Wise.”

As well as writing Jamie runs workshops for people of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels. In the past he has held writing workshops for Writing East midlands, Derby University,  Sheffield Hallam University, Leicester City Football Club, The Premier league Reading stars, Nottingham Poetry Festival, NCS, Twenty-Twenty, and many more Schools, Community groups, Educational hubs and colleges around the UK.
