When: Friday August 17th 7pm
Where: Cottons, 70 Exmouth Market EC1
Tickets: £6/5 and £11/10 with food

Artists on the night include:
Tshaka Campbell
Courttia Newland

Paul Cree
Leila Segal
Esther Poyer
Joelle Taylor

Hosted by poet Mark ‘Mr T’ Thompson and with soul filled tunes from Jazz FM’s Chris Philips, this one off event promises to an unmissable night.

Food for Thought – Writing with Letters

Events, Poetry, Radio, Recommendations

This is the first in an occasional series where I’ll be looking at the work of writers, performers and artists I admire. This week it’s esteemed poet Karen McCarthy Woolf whose upcoming workshop, ‘Inside Art, Writing with Letters’ will give experienced and less experienced writers a chance to explore how letter writing can contribute to the creative process.

Dzifa and I (under our collective title Word Migrants) had a great time hosting our book event, The Book Salon, last week featuring
Leila Segal, Gemma Weekes , Agnes Meadows, Rachel Rose Reid, Courttia Newland and singer/songwriter Marcus Begg whose photo you can see here.

It was taken by photographer Rob Covell whose portfolio is becoming increasingly impressive.



It’s to my great joy that there are an increasing number of high calibre book nights in London. Two of my all time favourites are the Book Club Boutique curated, designed and presented by the inexhaustible Salena Godden and Book Slam, hosted with effortless charm by Patrick Neate.

Inspired by the success of these two very enjoyable evenings Dzifa Benson and I have decided to plunge in to the heady world of book nights with our very own ‘The Book Salon’. The first night has a line-up so good that it makes me blush. Well almost.
