People Telling Stories


Started in January 2014 at the King & Queen in Fitzrovia. Run by myself and London writer Dave McGowan as a spoken word and live music night to provide a platform for the wide variety of voices that we weren’t hearing on the literary circuit in London. Voices telling stories in verse, prose, and song, which represented a diversity of life and experience.

Since then we have hosted 26 events - the last two being at the French House in Soho - with over one hundred artists, reading or performing their work. All the photos are taken by Peter Clark.

We are in process of producing our first anthology in collaboration with Wicked Hag in Berlin.

Containing work by:

Julia Bell, Sean Bonney, Laura Bridgeman, Valentine Carter, Jon Day, Kit de Waal, Ryan Addison Fletcher, Honor Gavin, Charlie Hill, James B. L. Hollands, Kerry Hudson, Keith Jarrett, Jonathan Kemp, Russ Litten, Fran Lock, Dave McGowan, Sam Mills, Lara Pawson, Bioni Samp, Sogol Sur, Gemma Weekes

Launching 23rd October 2018
