More About Mr. Mílise
Youth Mentor & Public Speaker Quinton Mílise, "Jumps Parallels" between Poetry, Spoken Word & Complex Narratives.
Mr Mílise (Which interprets as “He Spoke” from Ancient Greek) would draw from a “Colourful Upbringing full of quirky, compelling and outlandish Characters who lived their lives on the Margins of Society”. He often pens short stories which reflect on his background & upbringing. Mílise has been published by UNICEF & commissioned by the BBC. Some of his pieces have been used by Police Forces, Schools, & Councils as part of Social Awareness Initiatives across the UK.
Quinton Mílise also delivered a set of workshops called "Civil Writes" in which he interviewed Stuart Lawrence about racial disparity, discrimination and the loss of his brother Stephen Lawrence.
