SpitFire: Spoken word. Older womxn. No holds barred.

Created as part of my Dry Season project, SpitFire is an online poetry event curated to counter the youth-centric nature of much of today’s spoken word scene by providing a platform that amplifies the diverse talents, voices and experiences of older womxn.

SpitFire returns! Though conceived as a one-off event, SpitFire was so successful and the audience response was so positive that we’re now planning MORE, as well as associated creative writing workshops to help you unlock your own inner spitfire.

Watch this space for further details.

SpitFire is supported and funded by Arts Council England .
