Susan is a dynamo of a performer. Truly fabulous! Petersfield Write Angle

Susan’s performance of poems from her latest collection, skindancing, was a thrilling ‘tour de force’ experience; using vivid imagery and rhythms she created a wonderfully atmospheric buzz in the room, completely captivating a very enthusiastic and appreciative audience – Lynden Rees-Roberts, Director, Poetry in Presteigne Festival 2015

 

 

Susan has also recently been exploring live art performance, creating work for a number of festivals including Swansea’s Disruption and Fringe Arts Bath.

Susan’s…enthusiasm and dynamic performance brought us, as close as one could ever be in autumnal English Bath, right to the heart of…arctic climes…A memorable lunchtime session. I hope Susan can re-visit us and I heartily recommend her booksMichael Withey, Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institute

Do not miss the chance to see Susan Richardson perform. Her energy, enthusiasm and enjoyment are infectious and will disturb the certainty of many who believe that they read their own work well. So, book the author, buy her books and envy her skill both as poet and performer.  You will greatly enjoy the resultsMartin Parker, Organiser – Open Mic Poetry Nights, The Plough Arts Centre, Devon
