We look forward to verbal fireworks from Beth Calverley.
Beth Calverley is a poet, producer and facilitator who has been writing and performing for 17 years.
Through newly-ripened imagery, Beth finds words for the unspoken and unearths stories of togetherness and overcoming. This year, she became the inaugural Gloucester Regional Roundhouse Slam winner and a 2018 Roundhouse Finalist.
As Chief Operator of The Poetry Machine, Beth tours UK festivals and events speed-writing bespoke poetry. She hosts workshops that help people to put their own stories into words, and she has recently worked with Teenage Cancer Trust, This Mum Runs, Valley Festival and Arnos Vale Cemetery.
Beth is one quarter of Milk Poetry, a nurturing platform for established and emerging poets in Bristol.
We’ll be meeting upstairs at the Venue, 42 South Street, Wells BA5 1SL. Why not arrive early and have a pizza or a fish-supper? There is a car-park almost next-door, in Bell’s Close, and it is free in the evenings.
Just a month late for National Poetry Day, the optional theme for any poet in need of a prompt is “Change”. For the rest of you: write about whatever you please!
If you keep working on old ideas, new ones can’t show up.
