We are so excited to reveal all about our first time with poets and organisers, Carmina Masoliver and My Hairy Vag and Me. On Thursday, 5th September, we will be hosting a cheap, cheerful and cheeky OPEN MIC night of sweet, poetic magic.
I shouted my Ex’s name is an evening of sex & bodies poetry. It promises to be “serving you some raunchy rhymes, horny haikus, awkward alliterations and orgasmic odes” from anyone who wishes to get up on stage.
The Featured Poet
“Sexually confident, socially awkward”, guest poet and witty short story writer, Emily Harrison, will headline. The former Saboteur Awards Best Spoken Word Performer has performed at festivals like Glastonbury and Latitude as well as loads of poetry events around the country. Her full-length poetry collection “I Can’t Sleep ‘cause My Bed’s On Fire” (2016) was published with Burning Eye Books and her recent collab with TrueTube Is the BAFTA nominated “Reply With a Full Stop If You Get This”.
Carmina is a South London poet and founder of She Grrrowls feminist arts nights. She has been performing, grrrowling and being longlisted for several awards, ever since she was first long-listed for the Young Poet Laureat for London, in 2013. She’s even written a chapbook, published by Nasty Little Press, and a She Grrrowls anthology with Burning Eye Books.
My Hairy Vag and Me is the title of an unabashed Instagram page, deluged with flowing pubes, crashing periods and ghostly discharge. A diary of poems and sketches, My Hairy Vag and Me is so accessible, the author/poet counts their father as a follower.
I shouted my Ex’s name will begin at 7:30pm on Thursday, 5th September. Please arrive no later than ten minutes early. Each open mic speaker will have a five-minute slot, so please time your piece appropriately. Tickets are only £5.00 and complimentary Prosecco will be available.
