English was commissioned by Apples and Snakes and the Arts Council to be artistic director for this poetry tour. This appointment was based on her growing reputation through the "Temptation" tour. She both designed and directed "Exposed", expanding the audiences' experience of poetry through sound and visual mediums. This show was described as "Cutting Edge"
In the Independent Sept 4th 2006. Its originality was that it was the biggest poetry tour ever scheduled in the UK. It was significant in that English worked closely with the poets as a group and individually. She ran a weekend workshop at the Springhead Trust. Her creative input was as 'editor' for the poems produced. To achieve excellence of writing she used a combination of group workshops and individual tutorials to coach the poets in their performance and writing skills.
