Writer and poet Jackie Kay is this year’s guest curator at the Off The Shelf Festival of Words in Sheffield.

Last year, Jackie was commissioned to write a poem for the anti-racism Kick it Out campaign and she read her finished piece, Here’s My Pitch, celebrating the first black professional football player, Arthur Wharton, at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane stadium a year ago.
