“… easily one of the most gifted young wordsmiths I have ever had the pleasure to encounter… the discipline and confidence of a seasoned pro ten years his senior.  “

Akala (Rapper, Playwright and founder of the Hip Hop Shakespeare Company)

“…one of the most inspired, powerful poets I’ve heard in years. … talent and passion that puts a lot of older writers to shame. F*** knows what primal wellspring he’s pulling all this inspiration from, but anyway, world – take notice.”

Dizraeli (Champion Poet; Rapper; Dizraeli & The Small Gods.)

“Toby Thompson is the future.”
