Tate Modern Performance

Apples & Snakes Presents: Isaiah Hull

Join spoken word artist and writer Isaiah Hull reading from Nosebleeds, his debut poetry collection

Isaiah Hull’s Nosebleeds is a visceral and raw collection showcasing a voice far older than the poet’s young years. Hull’s writing is soul-searching and down to earth, written to be performed and yet transferring onto the page with remarkable clarity and ease. Nosebleeds is an exploration of self-expression, traversing emotion and form.

Isaiah will read from his work, followed by a Q & A and book signing.

Nosebleeds is published by Wrecking Ball Press.


Isaiah Hull is one of the Roundhouse/Radio 1 Extra finalists in 2015 at the age of 18, having participated in Wordcup, a national youth slam run by Apples and Snakes. Hull is inspired by Saul Williams, Philip Larkin and classical Greek tragedies. He is a member of the young writers collective, Young Identity, which was formed in Moss Side to encourage young adults and teenagers to express themselves through poetry. He has supported Kate Tempest, Lemn Sissay and Skepta at major events for the BBC and his TedX Talk The Unexplained Virtue of Ignorance has over 5000 views.
