This April Fools join us for an evening of poetry about fooling, jokesters and the schemes we weave to keep life exciting, featuring Milk Poetry favourite Laurie Bolger & March’s slam winner
Have you ever been made a fool of? Or have you made a fool of someone else? What’s the best prank you ever played? Are there any greater tricksters in the world than poets?
Join Milk Poetry this April Fools day for an evening of poetry about fooling, jokesters and the schemes we weave to keep life exciting. We promise not to pull the rug from under you, and there won’t be any woopie cushions under your seats.
Featuring Milk Poetry favourite Laurie Bolger & March’s slam winner.
Laurie Bolger is a London based writer and the founder of The Creative Writing Breakfast Club. Laurie’s work has been widely anthologised and has featured at Glastonbury, TATE and Sky Arts. Laurie’s first publication Box Rooms celebrated community and her W10 roots.
This year Laurie was the winner of The Moth Poetry Prize and was shortlisted for The Sylvia Plath, Bridport and Forward Poetry Prize. Her latest books include Makeover and Spin celebrating the resilience of working class women, autonomy and love.
We’ll also be running a Fools Special Slam – get in touch to get involved!
