The UK’s spoken word scene is thriving, and we have decided to invite anyone interested in writing or listening to poetry to jump on our bandwagon. We are hoping for a combination of first time & just-starting-out poets to established & confident poets at our non-genre specific ‘open mic’ (without a mic) afternoon where pieces may go from love, to comedy to very personal topics. If you would like an ‘open mic’ slot please email firstname.lastname@example.org and your name will be forwarded to Ann Allen who will add you to the list of readers, and hosts the afternoon.
Ann Allen’s poem Centenary Stop was included in the Poetry Anthology Adlestrop Remembered published to honour the centenary of the poet Edward Thomas. Ann’s first collection of poetry is Michelangelo Can Paint an Angel.
