The Kaje talks Latitude to John Osborne

Norwich based performance poet John Osborne is part of the well-known poetry collective Aisle 16, who run Homework.  Homework, a monthly night of literary cabaret at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, has featured performances by Kate Nash, Tim Key and Jon Ronson. Thought by many to be one of the saving forces of the spoken word scene, Osborne has become a regular on the festival circuit.  The last two years has seen Osborne move into the writer territory, having published two critically acclaimed books in less that 18 months.  This year, Osborne is returning to the festival circuit and is one of the highlights of Latitude‘s Poetry Arena.
