Poem of the Week: Raynor Winn

Writer Raynor Winn reads ‘Death Throes of a No-Man’, a poem written by a St Petrocs client. Part of our Poem of the Week, a feature throughout the winter of 2018–19, raising awareness of our campaign to end street homelessness in Cornwall.

Raynor Winn is a long-distance walker and writer. Her first book The Salt Path was a Sunday Times bestseller in 2018.

The Salt Path was shortlisted for the 2018 Costa Book Awards in the “Biography” category. The judges described it as “An absolutely brilliant story that needs to be told about the human capacity to endure and keep putting one foot in front of another.”

Over the winter of 2018–19 we will be sharing a different poem each week which will be read by notable figures, exploring the themes that resonate with our campaign.
