REBECCA TANTONY

Rebecca Tantony’s work offers a tapestry of intricate themes, bold writing and passionate intensity, creating a lyrical conversation straight to the heart. She has performed her work in numerous venues, including the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum, the Arnolfini, St George’s, South Bank Centre and Colston Hall, as well as a scattering of pub toilets.
Her recent collection of poetic flash non-fiction, Talk You Round Till Dusk, was published by Burning Eye Books in early 2015. She is currently finishing her second collection, All the Journeys I Never Took, and in 2017 will be touring her Arts Council Funded immersive spoken word show under the same title. When not performing she teaches spoken word in multiple venues, including the Barbican Theatre and Royal Geographical Society. In San Francisco, Rebecca worked for the globally-recognised creative writing centre, 826 Valencia.
