One Fine Degna

Degna Stone is an amazing poet whom I was very lucky to meet randomly at Luchars train station after the StAnza Festival in St. Andrews. You’ll feel lucky too. She’s making a lot of noise in Newcastle, has won a Northern Promise Award, and has been working with BBC’s ‘The Verb‘ as part of a new voices project. She is definitely one to hear. So, tune in friends — it is a pleasure to introduce you to Degna Stone.
