Performance Poet: Karen McCarthy

Karen McCarthy was born in London to an English mother and Jamaican father. She is the editor of the critically acclaimed anthology Bittersweet: Contemporary Black Women's Poetry (The Women's Press, 1998) which was nominated for Best Book in the EMMA Awards 2000.

Following on from the success of Bittersweet, her next anthology, Kin: New Fiction by Black & Asian Women is published by Serpent's Tail. Like Bittersweet, this new book is a platform
for many emerging writers, and was part of a larger cross-arts live literature tour kicking off in the October 2003.

Karen is a featured poet on the Kin tour, which is produced and programmed by Renaissance One and funded by the Arts Council. She has presented her work nationwide at a variety of venues, including The Poetry Society, the South Bank Centre and in Slovenia as part of
the British Council's New British Writing promotion. She was recently commissioned to write a radio script on DNA by Collage Arts and the Wellcome Trust and is also researching a period drama.
