We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our great friend and most powerful poet, Jean Binta Breeze.

Since 1986, Jean performed at nearly 90 Apples and Snakes events as well as mentored, encouraged and inspired generations of poets through our development programmes.

A pioneer, a true inspiration and total poetry legend – your impact on the world, poetry and poets has been deep Auntie Jean. We treasure having known you, a red wine in your hand and smile on your face.

Sending love to family and friends.

Rest well, most awesome lady.
