Veteran poet Janine Booth's open-mic night in new home town

entry picture

A veteran poet who moved out of London to Lewes is launching a new open-mic poetry night in the Sussex town, with Attila the Stockbroker as the first guest poet. Janine Booth – also known as The Big J – says Spoaken Word Lewes will take place on the first Sunday of the month, starting in September, from 7-10pm at the Royal Oak pub, close to Lewes rail station.

Janine Booth first became known as a ranting poet in the 1980s. Last year she published CoronaVerses, one of the earliest anthologies – if not the first – of pandemic poetry.

Janine is a regular guest poet at Well Spoken in Doncaster. We always look forward to hearing her when she ventures up north.
She has a unique ability to bring humour to the most serious situations.
Her and Attila the Stockbroker at the same venue is an event not to be missed.
If you're anywhere near Lewes get yoursen over to the Royal Oak, you won't be disappointed.
