Poetry Night with Kim Moore

About

Celebrate International Women’s Day with a sensational line up of poetry and spoken word performers - headlined by Kim Moore.

Kim will be sharing work from her new collection, ‘All the Men I Never Married’ (Seren, 2021).

Kim’s pamphlet ‘If We Could Speak Like Wolves’ was a winner in the 2011 Poetry Business Pamphlet Competition. Her first collection ‘The Art of Falling’ (Seren 2015) won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. Her first non-fiction book ‘What The Trumpet Taught Me’ will be published by Smith/Doorstop in March 2022.

She will be joined by writer and spoken word artist Simone Yasmin.

Simone is a Black writer, spoken word artist and vocal soul, born in Leeds. Simone writes about all the things people leave unsaid and, it her blog, ‘Etheral Truth’, pulls no punches when it comes to unpacking racism, feminism and other humanitarian issues. Simone Yasmin’s own experiences have helped to shape her work, though more recently she has worked to share the stories of those unable to voice their own. Her poetry emphasises her growth in working to take up all the space she needs, and Simone Yasmin hopes her poetry teaches others to be just as unapologetic as she is learning to be. Simone’s poetry has been featured in publications such as Unicef’s Words By and the BALTIC’s S.P.A.M. Spreads. Simone also runs Storytellers, an event inviting creatives to an inclusive and safe space, to gain feedback, confidence and trial new ideas.

We have a limited number of 5-minute Open Mic slots available for women who would like to share their work. If you would like a slot, please email a.corwin@kalasangam.org
