Verse Matters was back in September with a fantastic line-up of talented artists. Everyone loved the featured artists: from Toria Garbutt’s high-energy poems to Genevieve Carver’s wit and Lou Richards’ haunting melodies.
We were also very proud to host several poets who had never read their work in public before. Ross Walcott performed two powerful poems, Luke Worthy gave a moving reading of his work and Alice Pickersgill read her rousing poems to great applause.
You can catch a bit of Ross’s performance here: https://instagram.com/p/7iHN_LBYFs/
I gave a reading of my new poem “Persephone”
and there were some fantastic open mics, including Katherine Henderson (poet), Sarah Sharp (musician), Cherry Barham (Meerly Words) and Clare Ibberson-John (Poet). Come back again next month for another fantastic night of poetry, music and solidarity!
