Poets and Peacemakers.

It is my pleasure to announce the Lineup for the August Words at the Woodman.

Jessica Syposz is a writer/performer who is interested in how we can cultivate empathy in the face of an uncertain future. Her work incorporates Eastern European folklore, body horror and moments of everyday tenderness, and she has performed soundscape poetry on Birmingham's streets as part of Festival of Audacity 2019. She is currently writing about a mysterious Russian radio station.

Sit back and don't relax. Jemima Hughes is a Birmingham based performance poet who will drag you through the mindfield of the unorthodox. Her work covers topics such as sexual violence, mental illness and suicide. Jemima will take you on a journey through her own experiences, providing a relatable outlet and encouraging conversation. Not for the faint hearted, but definitely from the heart.
