I haven’t been to this event for a few years, but this headliner looks interesting:
Open Mic Poetry Event
This month taking place at
THE TREE HOUSE BOOKSHOP
4 The Square, KENILWORTH, CV8 1EB
Thursday, 11 May
7.30 p.m st.art
This month our headliner is the wonderful…Stephen Thomas
Stephen is a spoken word artist who is half German and half Yorkshire meaning he’s extremely efficient with words and has very tight rhyming patterns. In 2016, he was writer-in-residence at Writing East Midlands Writers’ Conference and he’s a host of Poetry is Dead Good, described by the Nottingham Post as the city’s ‘premier spoken word event’.
Inspired by fun things and interesting people, Stephen’s work is based around heavy thesaurus manipulation and making words do yoga. He has just finished writing his first collection, Alphabet Spaghetti, which is being published by Big White Shed. To mark the release, Stephen is embarking on a mini-tour stretching from Bristol to Newcastle of which his visit to Pure and Good and Right is part of.
