Afternoon Wordsmiths and Wonderers, It's my pleasure to introduce the Lineup for Feb 19th, 2020 WORDS @ the warehouse! 


Bernard Davis

Bernard started on the Birmingham Poetry Scene in 2014 as a photographer, within a few months he had started to make pictures out of words. There is a lot of influence from music in his poetry, from the rhythms of folk music and folk influenced classical music. Composer Andrew Downes has set 5 of his poems to music as a song cycle 'The Door of Winter', which had its first performance in 2017.

 

Ellie Rushton

Eleanor is a performer and facilitator who spends much of her time engaging young people in conversations about sex, relationships and mental health. She then enjoys recontextualising those conversations into poetry. Her poems and performances offer honest (and sometimes uncomfortable) intimacy, exposing how easy it is to become compliant in our own unhappiness

 

Shaun Hill

Shaun Hill has shared his tender words with huddles of humans across the country, reading in beds, bars, and festivals like UK Young Artists Takeover 2019. He is a Dynamo mentee with Nine Arches Press and co-runs a monthly workshop at the city’s Buddhist Centre. Find him on Instagram @warmbloodedthing.

 

Olivia Hodgson

Olivia Hodgson is currently completing her MA in Creative Writing. In 2016, she won Birmingham City University's Mercian Prize for Poetry. She is a Co-Founder at Poetry Birmingham and currently sits on the Editorial Team. Poetry and short fiction of hers has previously appeared in Strix and The Coffin Bell journals.'

 

Jack Crowe

Jack Crowe is a poet who’s been gently tapping Birmingham on the shoulder for a big while. He's made interdisciplanetary work for Verve Poetry Festival, Apples & Snakes and Beatfreaks. He's the co-inventor of Poetry & Music thing, Funkenteleky.

Jack’s words offer flights of fancy, but on those flights, there is a buffet trolley serving meaning, duty free. He has several books out – he will take them back to the library when he has read them.

Cas violet

Cas Violet is a new performer, a Marvel nerd and a raging bisexual with an aesthetic somewhere between Steven Tyler and Hans Christian Anderson. They pride themselves on dark, macabre imagery and philosophical, personal poetry.
