Following 5 years dedicated to supporting poets in the Midlands and across the country, Owen’s role as Associate Producer has come to its end and he is now off pursuing his own exciting creative projects.

During his time at Apples and Snakes, Owen led on the BBC Words First programme, developed our alumni Work From Home Programme, supported dozens of artists with successful DYCP applications and was instrumental in the sector-wide change of perception around young artist vs emerging artist via the Red Sky programme, amongst many other projects.

Having been a huge presence in the spoken word scene for the past 25 years, we are excited to see what Owen does next.
