Apples & Snakes Presents: Keith Jarrett

portrait of the poet

Join poet and educator Keith Jarrett as he reads from his poetry collection, Selah

Keith Jarrett’s Selah explores the fractured narratives of a Black British Identity. He conjures his work from his migrant parents and a religious upbringing and inner city London. The collection combines musical intrigue with history and desire. The poems feature organ recitals and teenage gospel hip-hop. Selah asks the reader to stop and consider.

Keith’s reading will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Selah is published by Burning Eye Books.

This event is part of the June Uniqlo Tate Lates.


Keith Jarrett is a UK and International Poetry Slam Winner. His play, Safest Spot in Town, was performed at the Old Vic and aired on BBC Four. Keith was recently selected for the International Literary Showcase by Val McDermid as one of the 10 most outstanding LGBTQ+ writers in the UK.
