Fen Speak is Ely's regular poetry, spoken word and storytelling open mic night where local writers come together to share their work in a friendly environment.
Fen Speak is back in February. One of the advantages to running events online is that they can welcome guest poets from further afield, and next month they will have a guest slot from Rick Dove.
Rick is a London-based poet whose work blends ancient and modern themes, always taking a keen interest in both societal and personal change and how they interact as we grow. A regular performer on the poetry scene since 2015, Rick has been published in poetry zines, in national press, is the current Hammer & Tongue Hackney Slam Champion 2019 and his new solo collection “Tales From the Other Box”, was published by Burning Eye in 2020.
There will also be open mic slots for poems and stories, which you can sign up for on the night or in advance.
This event will be online via Zoom. Register in advance via Eventbrite here to receive the Zoom meeting details. It will start at 7:30pm, and attendees will be admitted into the event from 7pm.
