Keith Jarrett is a poet, fiction writer and educator from London. His poetry addresses issues including identity, race and sexuality and takes its power from a sense of inquiry rather than polemic. He is a former UK Poetry Slam Champion and has won the International Slam Championship at FLUPP in Rio in 2014. His play, Safest Spot in Town, was performed at the Old Vic and on BBC Four in 2017 as part of the Queers series.
Jarrett runs workshops and has performed at and co-ordinated poetry festivals in Spanish and English, in the UK and abroad. His debut poetry pamphlet I Speak Home was published by Eyewear in 2015. This was followed by a full-length collection Selah (Burning Eye Books, 2017). Jarrett was named as a Spread the Word LGBT Hero in 2017.
