A Lovely Word

Mon 13 Aug 2018



The second Monday of every month

Liverpool’s most eclectic poetry & spoken word evening. Sign up for a five minute slot from 7.30pm on the night and read a poem or two. We welcome first timers and practised poets alike.

July headliner - Lisa Bower

Lisa Bower is from Liverpool - but has lived in Blackpool so long all but the twang has faded away. She is a lecturer of English Language, a writer of children’s fiction and organiser of the Pub Poets’. In poetry she writes about female experience from the perspective of women who don’t always have the freedom to explore feminism, focusing on the intersectionality of class and womanhood. She is a firm believer in education and sexual liberation, as well as owning up to only being able to do the best that we can do.

Lisa likes pink stationery, Terry Pratchett and a well made “old fashioned”.
