Front Room Poetry LGBTQ+ History Month with Ollie O’Neill 24 February 7.30pm on Zoom
We are really looking forward to having Ollie O’Neill headlining Front Room Poetry LGBTQ+ History Month
Front Room Poetry has really been about human connection during these challenging months. From our living room, to thirty, forty other peoples living rooms, bedrooms, gardens and cars, deep into the hearts and lives of others through the stories and poems that we’ve shared over Zoom. It’s felt personal and political, we are humbled to have had the opportunity to host some of the best poets in the UK, alongside our amazing local talent, some brave enough to test their voice for the very first time.
Ollie O’Neill is a poet and writer from London, currently based in Brighton. In 2013 she won the UK’s National Youth Slam Championship, and in 2020 she became a Barbican Young Poet alumni. She has gone read at venues such as The Institute of Contemporary Art, Soho Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, Cheltenham Literature Festival and many more.
In 2019, her debut pamphlet Ways of Coping was published by Out-Spoken Press. In 2020, her debut full length collection What We Are Given was published by Write Bloody UK – a collection exploring grief, relationships, and inheritance.
