Nick Makoha, Creative Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Goldsmiths, University of London, is working to create an in-depth online digital archive of Black Metic Poets. The term ‘Metic’, first used by T S Eliot, translates as foreigners or resident aliens whose allegiances are split between their homeland and their new country.

Kayo Chingonyi is a writer, editor, events producer, and creative writing tutor. His poems have been published in a range of magazines and anthologies and in a debut pamphlet entitled Some Bright Elegance (Salt Publishing, 2012). He represented Zambia at Poetry Parnassus, and is a fellow of the Complete Works programme for diversity in British Poetry.
