LSL April edition

Listen Softly London is thrilled to be welcoming Georgina Norie, Molly Case, and Daisy T-G, as our featured artists on Monday 25 April at The Barley Mow, Curtain Road, EC2A.

LSL April edition (4).pngGeorgina Norie is a member of the Roundhouse Poetry Collective. She met Poetry in 2011 and has since performed in various UK venues, including the Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Olympic Park and the Roundhouse. She explores her experiences of womanhood, love and loss, using stark imagery and painful honesty, taking inspiration from both the maternal and the grotesque.

Molly Case is a spoken word artist, writer and nurse born and brought up in south London. She received a first-class degree in Creative Writing and English Literature from Bath Spa University and during this time spent two years as a care worker looking after people with dementia.

In April 2013 she achieved national recognition after performing her poem ‘Nursing the Nation’ at the Royal College of Nursing, gaining over 350,000 views on YouTube in just a few months. Following this, Molly has performed her poetry up and down the country, across Europe, and at Glastonbury Festival. Her debut collection of poetry, ‘Underneath the Roses Where I Remembered Everything’ is out this year with Burning Eye Books.

She has appeared in the Guardian, the Independent, the Times, Elle magazine and Huffington Post, and was named in the Health Service Journal’s Inspirational Women list and the BBC’s 100 Women list. Molly is a multiple slam winner who was honoured to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace as part of the Contemporary British Poetry celebrations.

Daisy T-G is a lively spoken word poet and occasional ukulele lady from Cambridge. Current member of the Roundhouse Poetry Collective 2016 and Typeface Poetry Collective. Regular London performer and National Slam finalist 2015. Writes about small truths and big ideas. She has run poetry workshops in schools and universities both in the UK and abroad. Enjoys Bombay mix and trips that require strong backpacks.
