Canada's leading dub poet, Lillian Allen, has confirmed to launch her
Autumn 2012 Tour on October 15th, 2012 at Ó Bhéal in Cork.
Lillian is the godmother of dub poetry in Canada and has strong ties to
Jamaica's creative pioneer of the spoken and written word, the late Miss
Lou (Louise Bennett), as well as with Oku, Benjamin Zephaniah, and other
dub poets around the globe as she founded the successful Dub
Poetry Festival and was one of the founders of 'de Dub Poets' in Toronto
many year ago.
A creative writing educator at the prestigious Ontario College of Art,
as well as a
popular public speaker and performer, Lillian's work is taught in many
international universities and colleges. Her workshops are
powerful and she works with audiences of all ages.
Lillian's new web site is still being developed but you can have a look

dynamic as ever, and will be releasing new work later this year.
