Before coronavirus, Find The Right Words was a monthly poetry event at Upstairs At The Western. Two headliners, 10 open mics and a speed poet who was given three themes by the audience and an hour to write a brand new poem. Jess Green had built a thriving, supportive community who came back to watch every month and Jess is maintaining this in virtual form.
There is now a podcast of FTRW with headliners, open mics and Speed Poet contributing through recordings and Speed Poet themes being suggest through out FB, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Released on or just after the third Wednesday of every month, the FTRW podcast will be high quality, uplifting and communal, just like the live event.
Government advice means we are now closed until further notice. We’re heartbroken for our lovely theatre, our magnificent artists, our loyal audiences & volunteers & all our comrades in the industry. Love to you all. ❤️
