It’s a common thing to say in the poetry scene that if you wanted to, you could probably find a different poetry night every day of the week. That sadly says nothing about the quality just that there’s so many events going on. As a result of that, it means that you can miss a lot of nights people have talked about and one of the ones that I’d kept missing out on was She Grrrowls. I finally got round to going to their July one which coincidentally had my good friend Caroline Teague featuring at it as their musical guest.
Considering it was my first time there, I really enjoyed the night. A group of us went to support Caroline and the energy on the night was pretty great. I got on the open mic and tried out an updated version of a poem I really loved that seemed to go down well and Caroline killed her music set. The rest of the open mic-ers were great (I may be a little biased as I knew half of them) and as for the features, they each displayed something memorable.
