SOUNDBITES – Monthly Poetry Open Mic Event
We supply the mic – you supply the poetry
Put your name down for a 4 minute slot (first come, first served) or just come along and be entertained.
Readings by a local published poet each month and this month we are delighted to present TAHIRA REHMAN, a Poet and an Outreach support worker in Leeds.
Her poetry has been published in the US by Our Verse Magazine, Soul-Lit, locally by Make Our Rights Reality Campaign and is the author of Mirages to Reality published in April 2019. Here’s a link to Tahira’s latest publication.
She has headlined at various spoken word events including folk music festivals and is a lead poet of the Holbeck Poetry Hub.
“A uniquely styled performance that was atmospheric and powerfully thought provoking!” – Blur The Lines | Leeds Playhouse
“I was impressed by her confidence and feats of memory. Her poems are no less impressive, they’re rich in metaphor, putting me in mind of the great Middle-eastern poets of centuries past.” – The Fenton Boogie
Open mic list opens at 6.45pm.
Entrance – pay what you feel
