Tom Dewey is a Founding Member of the Sword Forge Collective 2022 – 2023.
Tom Dewey is a poet and playwright best known for his distinctive voice and prolificacy. Marrying surrealist imagery with multi-syllabic rhyme, his style produces literary dreamscapes which have been said to suggest “presence and absence, everything and nothing…Dewey is a young man under an old sun who catches its ancient light.” He became the youngest ever regional spoken word champion in 2015, and his influence is much to be detected in the Bristol poetry scene.
