This National Poetry Day, join the Mum Poet Club for an evening of poetry on parenthood.
Thursday 7 October 2021
At The Chapel at JCT, 83 Margaret Street, London, W1W 8TB (just behind Oxford Circus Street tube station).
With moving, hilarious and beautiful poems from experienced and award-winning performers to passionate and talented first timers - all members of the Mum Poet Club - this is sure to be an evening of tears, laughter and high quality poetry.
We will also be launching the latest issue of Mum Poet Club zine - on the theme of choices - at the event, with special guests to be announced.
A raucous, life affirming, celebratory, magical, powerful and cathartic evening of poetry about the magic and the mayhem of parenting - the perfect mums night out!
The Mum Poet Club was born in lockdown as a way to connect, support and encourage poetry-writing parents and has now hundreds of active members across the UK and publishes a regular poetry zine.
There will be a bar serving alcohol but not food. So please come and have a drink with us but eat beforehand.
Reviews for Book the Babysitter:
“A magic night – I left feeling inspired and uplifted.”
“Absolutely stunned by the poetic talent and the range of poems and feelings.”
“All the poets blew me away with their work – the emotion and strength in the room was palpable.”
“The power, pain, sexiness, joy and beauty these poets poured into their words was astonishing. Parents, women as they age, they’re often groups that get made fun of or are disregarded. You really shouldn’t. There’s magic in there that you’d do well to pay attention to.”
“I couldn’t sleep last night I was so excited about falling in love with poetry again. The amazing women who shared their words were so inspiring. Thank you for a magical evening.”
