Guerrilla Poet


The Guerrilla Poet takes poetry and performance out to where the people are at


Leo Sedgley is the Guerrilla Poet and he is on a mission to take poetry and storytelling out into the world. To the Guerrilla Poet, wherever there are people, there’s an audience.

In 2017 he completed a year of writing a poem everyday and posting them on facebook (see the Leo Sedgley facebook page to read all 367 of them).

The Guerrilla Poet performs spontaneously is public places, runs poetry and storytelling events in any place where there are people and performs to intimate audiences in his 1to1 poetry tent and in the worlds smallest big top which fits an audience of five people.  He loves to get people writing and performing, can deliver poetry and spoken word performance for any occasion and lectures on modern poetry, and the benefits of daily creative practice. The Guerrilla Poet is an advocate for poetry as the people’s artform.
