Matters of Verse. Verse that Matters.
Rachel founded Verse Matters, an intersectional feminist arts collective, in June 2015. Verse Matters runs regular arts events in Sheffield, creating a supportive space for people share poetry, music, dance and stories. Events take place at Theatre Deli. All events are open to all and pay what you can. Verse Matters now runs as a collective, including Kiran MB, Sez Thomasin, Salomée Béranger and Jo Irwin. Thanks also go to Kev Titterton and Mick Nott for tirelessly running the S2 Foodbank at every event. Find out more about future events on the Verse Matters website or come and join the Verse Matters group on Facebook.
Look out for the Verse Matters Anthology in November 2017! I’ve been co-editing the anthology with Helen Mort and it will be published by the brilliant Scarborough-based independent publisher, Valley Press.
