Verse Matters – September

Verse Matters was back in September with a fantastic line-up. Everyone loved the featured artists: from Toria Garbutt’s high-energy poems to Genevieve Carver’s wit and Lou Richards’ haunting melodies.

I was 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.

I gave a reading of my new poem “Persephone”

Rachel Bower VM 0915 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!
