SALLY JENKINSON

Sally Jenkinson is a poet who lives and works in The Forest of Dean, but she grew up in Doncaster (South Yorkshire), where they say poem like this: poym.

Her work has been featured by Obsessed with Pipework, Route (Born in the 1980s), Now Then Manchester Magazine, The Ted Hughes Poetry Festival Anthology (2016), Wordlife Poetry Anthology (2016), These Poets Our Kin / These Poems Our Stories (2017) exhibition, #Metoo Anthology (Fairacre Press 2017) and The Morning Star.

She has published two short collections ‘Sweat-borne Secrets’ (2012) and ‘Boys’ (2016) with Burning Eye Books.

Her show ‘Folly’ won and Artists International Development Grant in 2013 from Arts Council England and The British Council to tour Australia in 2014. She is a regular performer at festivals such as Glastonbury, WOMAD, Larmer Tree Festival, and Boomtown, and has curated the poetry stage at Shambala Festival since 2012.

‘Northern love/loss/laughter poems that sound like they should be written in empty chip paper and thrown at you from the top of the night bus.’ – Tongue Fu

HANNAH RAYMOND-COX

Hannah is an award-winning feminist poet who cares deeply about food, trains, and memes long dead. From Hong Kong, San Francisco, and currently living in the jungle of London, Hannah's sardonic poetry has made audiences around the world giggle nervously. Hannah recently became a Barbican Young Poet, completed a full run at Edinburgh Fringe with her show 'Polaris' and was published with Burning Eye Books earlier this year.

MAYA BLACKWELL

Through the use of polysyllabic rhyme-schemes, immersive imagery and heartfelt delivery, Maya tells stories of love and nature, with vulnerability and openness at the core of her performance. Her poetry takes you softly by the hand, leads you on a journey through wild forests and far-off starscapes and brings you back home with authentic stories spoken from the heart.

Maya is an active performer in the south-west poetry scene, having performed on the same line up as artists such as Vanessa Kisuule and Adam Kammerling for a ‘Blah’s big weekend’ and has performed at festivals such as Nozstock and Valley Fest. She has also been a featured artist alongside Fay Roberts for Milk Poetry, Birdspeed for She Grrrowls and supported Joelle Taylor and Maria Ferguson at Milk Poetry Festival 2018 at Tobacco Factory Theatres. Maya has recently published a collection for the Bristol University magazine ‘Helicon'. She also makes home-grown hip-hop for ‘Rooted Records’- a branch of ‘Rooted Collective’- a part-charitable clothing/art outlet and events company which she co-founded.

WHAT THEY SAY...

Not only is That's What She Said a great place to see talented literary performers, for everyone and not just women, but it provides a space for women to shout and scream their anger, their frustrations, their desires; a space without censorship, without objectification and without the dreaded “it must be her time of the month” quip. I think For Books’ Sake is doing some really important work." (Recent review of one of our London shows)


Can't make it? We'll be back in January. Want to get involved? Send us an email to bridget@forbookssake.net and we'll see what we can do!
