As Part of Our Great Expectations We Talk Poet and Boxer Matt Windle
Who says a person can only be one thing? Certainly not this man.
A poet by day and boxer by night is rising star, Matt Windle. Matt Windle has claimed the title of Birmingham’s Poet Laureate at a special National Poetry Day Gala event last October, at the launch of the Birmingham Literature Festival.
Matt is a qualified ABA England boxing coach, who successfully attempts to mix the unusual blend of boxing and poetry to break stereotypes and prove that people can be as diverse and unique as they want to be.
Matt delivers workshops, performances & boxercise classes to schools, libraries, foster homes, young offenders, residential care homes and various other establishments and has collected a creditable amount of accolades along the way.
We predict bigger things lie ahead for his future so watch this space.
