An evening of poetry and conversation
JJ Bola with David Morgan, Psychoanalyst
JJ Bola is a Congo born, London raised writer, poet, educator and workshop facilitator. He has successfully published two books of poetry Elevate and Daughter of the Sun (ebook). His third, and latest, is his most comprehensive poetry collection WORD, which was launched to a sold out crowd, during Refugee Week in 2015. JJ Bola’s work is centred on a narrative of empowerment, humanisation, healing of trauma as well as discovery of self through art, literature and he believes that the true purpose of poetry (art) is to expose the reality of this world and how to, most importantly, survive it.
