‘Poetry is ordinary language, boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words’ – Paul Engle
We take preconceptions of poetry and performance as our mantra, to be smashed into helpless pieces through weekly workshop sessions – we voice, create and challenge the sentences we scrawl and the way we use them before ourselves and the eyes of diverse audiences, courtesy of events that seek to:
unleash the engaging power of words. express the voices of young people, often discouraged to do so, with an energy no longer bound. ask as many questions of the audience as of ourselves.
We believe we can devise workshops and events welcoming and open enough to move an emotionally-charged art student as much as a work-weary kebab shop owner.
We’re always on the move and spreading our wings around the Nottingham area and beyond.
We exist everywhere online and always want to collaborate and connect:
Stay Mouthy. x
