Howdy hepcats! Are you ready for another spooktacular instalment of 'That's What She Said', For Books’ Sake’s night of spoken word all written and performed by women? By welcoming a wide range of speakers, from slam poetry to storytelling, contemporary political thought to comedy, we bring women’s voices to the forefront, while at the same time giving a platform to writers and performers we love.
Speaking on the night:
Leon Craig is 24 year old writer from London. Her story ‘Mute Canticle’ was shortlisted for the 2016 White Review Short Story Prize. She was given a Young Writer’s Award by theshortstory.co.uk and her stories can be found on their site, on Litro.co.uk and in the Next Review. Her short immersive play ‘Ermine/ Stoat’ was put on at Babel Studios as part of Alchemical Door. Leon has performed at Swimmers London, QueerCircle, and the Moth and is due to read at the Polari LGBT History night at Southbank on February 24th. She is working on a collection of short fiction, to be called Spiteful Tales.
Open mic walk ups on the evening are welcomed but with limited places it might be advisable to email email@example.com if you have a burning desire to speak
out and speak up.
Get your tickets for only £7 now while you can, or come along on the night for £10 on the door.
And remember - For Books' Sake is a volunteer led, charitable organisation so all your pennies will be going back into championing women writers!
