Liverpool local Ashleigh is a writer, performer and creative director at RiseUp CiC whose publishing credits include poetry anthologies, blogs, magazine articles and academic journals. His debut novel, Locks, is based on his time spent in a Jamaican detention centre on his 17th birthday. Ashleigh’s one-man-show won a bursary from Live Theatre, Newcastle and has received rave audience reviews following showings in theatres and prisons throughout the UK. For the past 22 years he has used rap, poetry and literature to help the most vulnerable to develop positive mindsets, empowering prisoners to turn their lives around by taking control of their own thoughts, feelings and actions.

Blackwell's bookshop will be facilitating a book signing after this event in the Waterhouse Café.
