Verve Poetry Festival 16th-19th February – Birmingham


I am delighted to be reading next month at the Verve Festival as part of the Nine Arches Showcase along with Robert Peake, Isobel Dixon and Roy McFarlane.

Verve is a four day festival of world class poetry and spoken word, with readings, performances, workshops, children’s events and more in the heart of Birmingham. Tickets are on sale now, with festival passes and workshops limited. The price of each of these events is remarkably low and the all-day passes a steal.

Poets include Sarah Howe, Mona Arshi, Anthony Anaxagorou, Sabrina Mahfouz, Luke Kennard, Kim Moore, Melissa Lee-Houghton, Helen Mort, Daljit Nagra, Soweto Kinch, Dean Atta, and many more brilliant poets.

I have a very tiny poster (thanks to Clive Birnie) listing all the poets (you might need to play “Guess the Poet”) and a big thank you to Jane Commane for inviting me to read.
