Rick Dove

Rick Dove is a mixed-race, London based poet whose work draws narratives, and styles, from wide influences, always takes a keen interest in both societal and personal change, and how these cardinal forces interact as we grow. A regular performer on the London poetry scene since 2015, Rick has been published in numerous poetry zines and the national press. His first pamphlet, Haigha’s Noosphere Canticles, was published in 2017 by William Cornelius Harris Publishing, and his debut full collection Tales From the Other Box, was published by Burning Eye in 2020.

In July 2021, Rick became the UK Poetry Slam Champion for 2021.

Rick’s poem, Temporospatial Tongue Triangulations, is published in Arachne’s forthcoming anthology, Where We Find Ourselves.
