Beth Calverley is a poet, creative coach and founder of The Poetry Machine. Her poems are hopeful and true; they open the wardrobe door to a world of burst horizons and smiling witchcraft. Beth was the inaugural Gloucester Regional Roundhouse Slam Champion and went on to compete in the Roundhouse Final 2018. She collaborates with festivals, hospitals, universities, companies and charities across the UK, helping people to put their thoughts and feelings into words.

“Beth has the innate ability to capture a feeling and make you feel safe within it. If poetry could hold your hand, this is what it would feel like.” - Malaika Kegode

Pauline Seawards has long adopted Bristol as her home city but when all her family left home a few years ago she upped sticks and moved to London. After feeling lost, often literally, on the Circle Line etc she managed to navigate her way round the city and make friends through poetry and spoken word. Now back in the South West she helps run Satellite of Love a monthly event at the Greenbank Easton. Her work has recently been included in an online anthology 18 at Culture Matters and her first collection ‘This is the Band’ was published by Hearing Eye in 2018


All for only £6 adv (£4 if student or unwaged - ID required on entry)


Not only is That's What She Said a great place to see talented literary performers, for everyone and not just women, but it provides a space for women to shout and scream their anger, their frustrations, their desires; a space without censorship, without objectification and without the dreaded “it must be her time of the month” quip. I think For Books’ Sake is doing some really important work." (Recent review of one of our London shows)

Can't make it? We'll be back in January. Want to get involved? Send us an email to bridget@forbookssake.net and we'll see what we can do!
