Lucas Howard

Lucas Howard is a rhythm based performance poet, hosting nights across the South East for the past ten years. A lover of words, he has dedicated himself to helping others find their voice and confidence through the medium.

With influences ranging from classic verse to hiphop, Lucas has a way of seeing language and the written form from an outside perspective. He attributes his struggles with dyslexia as being a marvellous gift. “In a place where nothing makes sense, any sense we can salvage will be our own”. Lucas currently hosts a popular spoken word event in Hastings called Slam Dunk and takes poetry workshops to local schools, showing that the stage is a perfect place to break free of social constraints and embrace one’s own ridiculousness.
