Front Room Poetry with Shareefa Energy 25 November 7.30 pm
We are really looking forward to having Shareefa Energy headlining Front Room Poetry.
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.
Shareefa Energy is a spoken word poet, writer, mentor, workshop facilitator and author of Galaxy Walk. Her poetry is raw, honest and consistent against injustice. Witnessing her performing has been described as an almost religious experience. She was awarded with the UK Entertainment Best Poet 2017 Award and a nominee for the Eastern Eye Arts, Culture & Theatre 2019 award by the Arts Council. She released her spoken word neo-soul jazz EP ‘Reasoning with Self’ in 2015.
We have a total of 10 open mic slots available for anyone to read poetry.
