Laura Taylor - Fault Lines
One of the UK’s most incisive performance poets is on a whistle-stop tour of London in October to promote her second collection ‘Fault Lines’
‘Fault Lines’ is a “poetic battle cry. I’d like my teenage daughter to read these poems because, as women, we shouldn’t have to wait for middle age to claim the right to be ourselves” (Alice Nutter, ex-Chumbawamba), as well as being “Defiant, furious, vulnerable, bloody-minded and wonderfully joyous” (Steve Pottinger, poet and performer).
Laura Taylor, described as “one of the country’s finest poets, both on the page and on the stage” (Attila the Stockbroker) brings her gritty and mesmerising poetry to the following venues:
Friday 5th October, 7-9pm:
The Bread and Roses, 68 Clapham Manor Street, SW4 6DZ
Saturday 6th October, 7-9pm:
Housmans Radical Booksellers, 5 Caledonian Road, N1 9DX
Sunday 7th October, 7.30-9.30pm:
Bar48, Brixton Road, SW9 6BT
Entry is free for all events, with payment on a pay-as-you-feel donation basis.
Laura will be ably supported by “the mouth of the south” Cherry Scott and Gerry Clarkson (aka Guerrilla Lips) on Friday and Sunday, and by Marxist motormouth, writer, poet, activist and original ranter Janine Booth on Saturday.
There are a very limited amount of open-mic spots available for each event, for anyone who wants to take the opportunity to get up in front of an audience and read some of their own work. To book one of these spots, email Laura here.
