Russell Jones: Poet

Russel Jones (blog here) was placed third in the ESRC Genomic Forum's poetry competition and didn't quite win a recent 'friendly' poetry slam with his poem titled, Why I Hate Poetry Slams.

I've been trying to offer my subjects a choice of location, both to make them feel comfortable and to put them in an environment which might be better suited to their work or personality. In this case I had an image in my head of Russell standing dramatically in the Old College quad and suggested this to him. It didn't quite come out as I had intended but I like the air of calm confidence.
