Event description

Description

British fantasy poet Maz Hedgehog will headline Bad Language on March 27th, as she releases a new book inspired by John Keats and Neil Gaiman.

Maz is a spoken word poet and performer whose debut collection of original poems, Vivat Regina, takes on conquest and duty and freedom and flowers and fairies. The book, released on Superbia Books, evokes the English epic poem The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser, while also asserting the place of black queer perspectives and viewpoints within British cultural identity.

Expect magical beasts and beings - and a wonderful set of performers to join Maz on March 27th. On Sunday March 10th, we will release ten open mic spots for this event, with at least five spots reserved for those who haven't read with us before. Look out for the announcement, and be quick to email when it appears!

"I haven't read poetry in over a decade. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to read this collection. Maz's language and imagery skills are phenomenal. They carried me away into misty, faerie realms with the entire range of human emotions." Online customer review

Wednesday 27 March 2019, 7.30pm at Gullivers (opposite The Castle), Oldham Street, Manchester.
