Carol Leeming

Carol Leeming

Notable poets admire her evocative imagery, experimentation, signature bold sensuality, alongside nuance and use of subtext.


Carol Leeming writes for the stage and the page, her poetry ranges widely in themes/topics, from metaphysical, nature, or race ethnicity, gender, sexuality and eroticism, to the confessional. Stylistically akin to German Expressionist poets, her poetry always acutely observed, often visceral and noted for lyrical qualities, its sensuality and musicality of word. CaroI writes Choreopoems, dramatic prose poems with movement, music and digital visuals performed on stage. She is also the ‘Madame’ and a lead poet for Poetry Brothel UK. Carol is known to perform in a compelling powerful declaimatory style.
