Red Room Poetry has partnered with Unspoken Words to commission two new poems. Winnie Dunn and Ella Skilbeck-Porter will each write a new poetic work based on their experiences at the festival. They will then read the poems at Sunday night’s performance session, Unfinished Business. Their final poems will be published in the Red Room Poetry Library.
Come and listen to the best of storytelling from a range of voices and communities. This is about spoken word and unspoken words. Writers show their craft, and direct their own discussions about it.
What is overlooked or silenced when it comes to poetry? Who’s there, and who’s missing? How can we broaden the range of stories we’re engaging with? How can we ask the uncomfortable questions? How does our storytelling and storylistening affect the way we do other things?
