Bristol’s leading spoken word nights collaborate for two lovely, summery, spoken joint events.
A rare chance to see proper poetry sets from the hosts of Blah and Milk, Anna Freeman, Malaika Kegode and Beth Calverley.
Anna Freeman is the (cynical, funny) host of Blahblahblah. She’s also a novelist, creative writing lecturer at Bath Spa University, the host of Radio 4’s Sketches and a multiple slam winning poet. Malaika Kegode’s work is beautiful and deeply personal. She’s the former host of Exeter’s Spokes Amaze, the founder and host of Bristol’s Milk Poetry, the author of Requite, published by Burning Eye Books, and has worked with BBC 1Xtra and the Roundhouse. Beth Calverley writes moving, uplifting word magic. She’s one of the hosts of Milk Poetry, the chief operator of poetry-on-demand event The Poetry Machine and was the inaugural Gloucester Regional Roundhouse Slam winner.
And feature sets from two brilliant poets who are also known to do a spot of hosting, Chris White and Deanna Rodger. Deanna Rodger’s work is full of astute observation and brilliantly delivered. Featured as one of ELLE UK magazine’s “30 Inspirational Women Under 30”, she is a former UK Poetry Slam Champion and one of the hosts of London’s Chill Pill. Chris White is the (hilarious, super-smart) current Exeter Slam Champion, an associate artist of Theatre Royal Plymouth and the host of Exeter’s Spork! Poetry nights.
