Words of change: an online poetry night

Book online


Poetry can be powerful, comforting, and challenging. We live in unprecedented times and much has changed in the last few months.

So why not join us for an online poetry reading and performance night as we share poems on the theme of ‘change’. Perhaps this change is exciting, perhaps it is concerning, perhaps things haven’t changed enough? Let’s celebrate and reflect on what change has meant for others, and what it means for us in the current times.

You are welcome to come along and listen or to contribute either with poetry you have written yourself or poems by others that you have found to be particularly meaningful and moving.

The poems can reflect political change, personal change, geographic change or any other way you interpret what change means. You can do a traditional poetry reading or you can do a more performative piece. Slam poetry is very welcome.

There will be pre-recorded poetry readings and an open mic part of the evening for people to contribute.

You can join the event on Zoom.
