Here’s my performance from SST11 with Mouthy Poets at Nottingham Playhouse. Words and performance by me (obviously :P), filmed by Ioney Smallhorne and Ben Harriott, edited by Ioney Smallhorne.
I wrote this when I was doing my MA — that’s my excuse for recording it when dressed like a student and I’m sticking to it! I resurrected it for the awesome Too Deep For a Monday a few months back and now it seems to have become my Women’s Issues Poem, but really it’s the Poem that Makes People Giggle. Both giggling and thinking are good things, so whatever you make of it, Happy International Women’s Day.
As promised, a poem I wrote on the Arvon course. Thanks to Caroline Bird for her feedback on this poem.
