Good Shout – Monthly Poetry Open-mic, with special guest Jemima Hughes
1 February @ 19:00-23:00 GMT
Well, well, well, it’s our first open mic of 2024…we’d better smash it then!
Good Shout is held at Here We Aren’t, Godric Square every first Thursday of the month; pay what you feel, doors at 6.45pm, start at 7pm.
So how does this affect you?
Are you a poet? Come and do some words.
Spoken Word and Poetry open mic, first come, first served. 10 minute max per poet, but priority is given to new performers and those who travel!
If you would like to perform, get in touch via facebook, or just turn up on the night and sign up on the door!
This month we are joined by the immensely talented Jemima Hughes!
Jemima Hughes is a multi slam winning performance poet who will sweep you up and drag you through the “mindfield” of the unorthodox, swiftly spinning it into the ordinary. She brings you into the storm, pauses for breaks in the clouds, and sits with you in the aftermath to discuss how to rebuild. Jemima’s debut poetry collection ‘Unorthodox’, published with Verve Poetry Press in 2020, challenges perceptions of living with sexual trauma and mental health issues through personal experiences. Her new 2023 collection ‘Into The Ordinary’ aims to change perspectives on how we can make the world a more accepting, understanding and comfortable place for those living with these experiences.
