Free Poetry Event on the Theme of Masquerade

Word Art & Picturehouse present a Free Poetry Event on the Theme of Masquerade

Thursday 13 September, 7.00

An eclectic range of London-based poets from diverse backgrounds have collaborated to present a unique lyrical journey into the depths of a poetic masquerade. Please come and join us for what we hope will be a thought-provoking and mysterious event in the heart of Greenwich, exploring identity and everyday masks. Masquerade dress optional.

Poets include:

Hollie McNish

Hollie has been performing around the UK and Europe and running educational poetry workshops on topics ranging from racism and politics to cookery, riversides and bumblebees! She also works as poet in residence and event organiser with Shape East, an educational charity focused on sustainable and ecological urban planning and youth inclusion in decision-making, running workshops with ages 8+. 
 
Her poetry is mostly straightforward rhyming and in spoken form, taking a lot of inspiration from UK hip-hop and grime, Sixties protest lyrics and everything around her. She is a breath of fresh air- sit back and be inspired.

Hollie’s first album, Touch, a collection of poetry and beats, was released in 2010, and WOW will be released in 2012.

David Lee Morgan

Born in Berlin, and raised in Seattle and Eastern Washington, David Lee Morgan has been based in London for the past 25 years, travelling the northern hemisphere as a street musician (saxophone) and performance poet. He has written novels, plays and musical theatre. He has won many performance poetry competitions, including the 2010 Farrago UK Slam Championship. He recently completed a PhD in creative writing and philosophy at Newcastle University. He is a longstanding member of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain.
