    POETRY AND ACTIVISM: WHAT’S THE ISSUE WITH “ISSUE” POETRY?

    With Carmina Masoliver

    Poetry can be a means to tackle different issues: areas where we feel there’s injustice, raising awareness about something that deserves more attention, or finding a way to produce activist art. However, a problem may emerge from writing about topics such as…

    Secret Garden Party

    100_4112A run down of my time at Secret Garden Party…

    The Good

    1. So, I guess number one has to be my performance… even if I do say so myself, haha! But seriously, after Latitude my nerves had calmed and I actually managed not to spend the three days leading up to my performance stressing. I really enjoyed my time there and could definitely have gone on longer!

    2. The lake – the first thing we did was go…

    Latitude 2014 - New Voices

    Latitude 2014 – New Voices

    100_4033

    This time last year I was performing at Larmer Tree festival, and now I’ve just come back from Latitude Festival, where I performed as part of the New Voices. It will be the first of five festivals that I will be performing at this summer, and considering how nervous I was and how surreal it seemed, it went really well.

    Nasty Little Press and Festival News

    Nasty Little Press and Festival News

    I thrilled to announce that this July I will be publishing a mini-book of work as an part of the ‘Intro’ series with Nasty Little Press. In 2011/12 I completed an MA in Creative Entrepreneurship (aka Survival Guide for Artists) and one of the goals I wrote done specified getting a pamphlet published by Nasty Little Press, so… two years later, life feels pretty unreal right now. The books have…

    Covent Garden Comedy Club - Saturday 28th June

    Covent Garden Comedy Club – Saturday 28th June

    I got an offer in Time Out for half price tickets to the Covent Garden Comedy Club.
