Patricia Foster: My Journey

My Apples and Snakes journey commenced in January 2002, with Malika’s Kitchen. My first major performance experience and poetry booking too! The Malika’s Kitchen collective were well supported and nurtured by Apples and Snakes during the lead up to the gig. In addition, our show ‘New Shoots‘ was sold out! The Battersea Arts Centre heaving with excitement. The feedback was amazing!

Another memorable Apples and Snakes experience for me, was being granted the opportunity to host a special show, featuring Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, Malika Booker and Gemma Weekes, three of the UK’s most celebrated, brightest and captivating writers and performers. It turned out to be a fantastic evening of poetry! Where better to start your hosting career?

I’m completely humbled and grateful to Apples and Snakes for two of many wonderful poetry experiences we have had together, which have held me in good stead over the past 10 years. I very much look forward to working with them over the next thirty (or so) years!
