Luke Emsley

featured in Scissortail Quarterly #1

Luke is a poet, spoken-word artist and rapper. Having originally trained as an actor at London’s Italia Conti Academy, Luke is highly passionate about the power of the spoken word; he is fascinated with the use of rhythm, after becoming spellbound by Shakespeare’s use of iambic pentameter: it was a foregone conclusion that Luke would look to immerse himself in poetry and performance! His first venture into the world poetic was when penning marketing verses for his debut novel Beyond Daylight. The poetry soon took on a life of its own and Luke hasn’t looked back. He will be publishing his first collection of poetry in 2021 as well and releasing a debut rap EP.
