Indigo Williams

After bursting on to the poetry scene in 2010, Indigo established herself as a poet who commands the stage with gripping presence and powerful poetry. With both substance and passion, her work is emotive and thought provoking. She is the winner of the 2012 New Generation slam and has facilitated workshops across Europe, Bangladesh and Nigeria.

Indigo is one of 6 leading poets working full-time in a secondary school as part of the pioneering Spoken Word Educators programme in conjunction with Goldsmiths University. She is passionate about using the power of poetry to engage and transform the lives of young people.

Her work has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Bespoken Word, Tedx Brixton, Glastonbury Festival, Cheltenham Literature Festival and many more. Her poem ‘The Organist’ was commissioned by the Royal Festival Hall and is featured on the BBC Radio 3 page in celebration of the newly restored Royal Festival Hall organ.
