carol batton’s poetry


Carol Batton has been described as the poet laureate of the mental health survivors’ movement. In any case, she’s official poet of the UK’s Socialist Health Association. Myself, I’ve discovered la Batton via the intro of Andy Votel’s Folk Is Not A Four Letter Wordv/a cd (Delay 68, 2005), an excerpt of her poem “Bee-ing”. Hey and give Wintera listen too – it’s on Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word 2(Delay 68, 2006).
