As this month’s night fell so close to International Women’s Day, and the theme of this years day is #BalanceforBetter, we wanted to celebrate women poets in Liverpool by reserving half of the sign up slots on the night for women.
The evening was presented by Alex Ferguson and this months excellent headliner was Carmina Masoliver!
Carmina Masoliver is a writer from south London. She has been sharing her writing on the page and stage since 2006, with features across the UK at festivals such as Latitude, Bestival, and Lovebox, and events such as Bang Said the Gun.
She is the founder of She Grrrowls – a night featuring women and non-binary people in the arts. In 2017, Burning Eye Books published an anthology of ten poets commissioned by Carmina, with thanks to funding from Ideas Tap. She is a member of the Burn After Reading community and is in a collective of poets called Kid Glove, born out of the Roundhouse programme and creators of ‘Dear Adventure’, performed as resident artists at the Roundhouse as part of the Last Word Festival.
Carmina was long-listed for the Young Poet Laureate for London award in 2013 and was also the winner of that year’s Poetry Rivals competition. Most recently, she was longlisted for the inaugural Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowships in 2017.
