Dominic was the 2020 Saboteur award for Best Spoken Word Artist who has been the Glastonbury Festival Poet in Residence.
He has a new poetry book, ‘Yes Life’, out with Flapjack Press now, and is on tour!
This is a book charting one journey from challenging times to friendship and joy. To euphoric excitement and blissful rest, from old He-Man toys, choose-your-own-adventure books, moving music in grin-packed pubs and fantastic festivals, sublime seaside solitude, and many different ways for a person to play.
“Love is who we are.”

“Rhythmic, vibrant, and gentle, Yes Life is a love letter to the many ways in which we get to see the world.” – Desree, spoken word poet & educator
“The dependable vim of Dominic’s performances is built upon the remarkable vigour of his writing. These exciting poems leap from the page.” – Tony Walsh AKA Longfella, poet
Rebecca Kenny founded Bent Key Publishing in February 2022 after recovering from a car crash in which she broke her neck and back. She publishes and amplifies marginalised voices and authentic stories, and calls Bent Key her “love letter to the poetry community.” Her debut collection Crash & Learn was shortlisted as part of the Top Ten final books in the Poetry Book Awards in 2022 and her poem Elephant Juice has been nominated, by her peers in Bent Key, for a Pushcart Prize. She has performed in Fringe shows in Brighton and London, and intends to branch out into more festivals during 2023. In May, she is taking Bent Key’s Queer House Party to London, and is currently working alongside poet Stevie Turner to develop a new, immersive poetry and spoken word experience in Manchester. She writes about life, love, and the mundane bits of existence that make her truly feel something.
