Gladys McGee

Gladys was involved with the Basement Writers from around 1974 and lived near Watney Market. She wrote a lot of poems about life in Wapping and Shadwell. She wrote and gigged and was known for her forthrightness and humour.

Whilst not a ranter she did gig with us and was a genuine working class voice.
