Description

Back in our usual and, arguably, on brand venue, The Book Club, That's What She said is ready to close out theyear with a barnstorming line up. We hope you are prepared - For Books’ Sake’s night of spoken word all written and performed by women is here to welcome 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:

MCMC Spoken (@MCMCSpoken) is carving out her reputation as a poet, working with local producers and rappers to make hip hop tracks, hone here freestyling skills and perform at spoken word gigs both locally and across the UK and Europe. Her love of poetry has led her to collaborate and perform alongside many other accomplished poets, and in October 2015 her poems were published alongside other esteemed Cornish writers. One of her contemporaries, Anna Murphy of Kneehigh Theatre writes, “Megan Chapman’s poetry is heartfelt and rhythmic. Playful and political, her Art is in the right place.” What fitting praise for such a delightfully challenging artist!


Comedian, author and broadcaster, Rosie Wilby (@rosiewilby), has appeared many times on BBC Radio 4 and at major festivals including Glastonbury and Latitude. She was a finalist at Funny Women 2006 and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 and has been touring award-winning solo shows internationally ever since. Her writing has been published in The Sunday Times, New Statesman and more. Her first book Is Monogamy Dead? (Accent Press) is getting rave reviews and follows her TEDx talk of the same name. It has just been shortlisted in the Memoir category at the inaugural Diva Literary Awards.


Amber Agha (@amberwrites) has been writing poetry, plays and short stories for over 20 years. Her work has been published by Arrival Press, Forward Press and Pyramid Press. In 2010 she was a semi finalist in the Brits Writers Awards. In 2011 her work was published in 2 "Poetry Rivals" anthologies. Her first collection In The Arms of Lyra was published in 2010 and is available on iTunes. Her second collection The Beloved- Journey to Union is available on Amazon and was first published in 2014 with a second edition published in early 2015. Amber's soundscapes and sound installations have been showcased in galleries across the UK and America during 2016 and 2017.


Elle Dillon-Reams (@Elle_D_Reams ) is an actress and poet, originally from Brighton. She is part of the all female company The Handlebards; a cycling Shakespeare company, and has spent the last year and a half cycling 2,099 miles across the length and breadth of the UK, as well as touring internationally.


Charli, from London, loves drawing and dating odd men. Her Instagram account, @theregoesthealarm, brings these two joys together.
