Poetry Against Homelessness

Wednesday February 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£1 – £5

We’re very excited to welcome back New River Press for an evening of wild and inspiring poetry and music performances by people who have experienced homelessness and the poets who have tutored them.

It’s in celebration of the project I AM NOT WHO YOU THINK I AM. Since June ‘19 New River Press have teamed up with the novelist Miranda Gold, who started a writing group at Crisis Skylight. New River became involved and have since been facilitating workshops and one-to-one surgeries with top poets lending their time to spread genius. Out of this New River are editing an anthology of poetry by people who have experienced homelessness due Winter 2020.

Their events with Crisis so far have been electric. Tighter and richer each time. Watching this most incredible group of poets soar is like nothing else. Not to be missed.

Please note that tickets are Standard £3 (value redeemable against purchase), Unwaged £1 (value redeemable against purchase) and Solidarity £5.
