Reading at Brixton BookJam

Born, bred, and based in Brixton, I am a lover of the arts with a lifelong interest in and passion for creative expression – helps to soothe my troubled mind…

Artist, poet, believer in social justice, I have spent more than 30 years working for and behalf of local communities with a sharp eyed focus on bringing high value investment to the grass roots.

I first started reading poetry at Church, then at Apples and Snakes gigs, and more recently at 198, Virgo Fidelis, Loughborough Farm for the 7Bridges Project, and The Poetry Society’s Stanza Bonanza.

“Reading at The Brixton Book Jam is a welcome opportunity to share my work with a wider audience and other writers at an illustrious local event.”

The Brixton BookJam

A congenial, intelligent, unpredictable free event for readers and writers.

The Hootananny, Brixton (95 Effra Road, London SW2 1DF), is a large pub with a performance space that can hold 600 people. The closest tube station is Brixton (Victoria line) and buses 2, 3, 415, 432 and 196 will transport you very near to the venue.
