Stirred: Mirrors


3MT Monday 28th April Doors at 7.30. Sign up for open mic on the facebook event here or message the hosts privately.

Stirred Poetry is a feminist focused poetry event that has been supporting women and everyone for three years.

Feel free to interpret the theme however you want. Mirrors as doorways, as lakes, as doppelgangers.

Special Guests:


Shirley May is co-founder and voluntary Creative Director of Young Identity, a young people’s poetry collective. She has also been part of Commonword, a literature development organisation. Shirley won the North West Poetry Slam and has performed at prominent venues across the North West.



Andrew is a Manchester-born writer of poetry, creative non-fiction and obscure radio drama. He started performing his poetry publicly in mid 2013, and since then has become obsessed with it. His writing veers towards the more surreal elements of life and often blends together poetry and prose. He has a (healthy) obsession with the TV drama The L Word and tends to think and speak of fictional characters as though they were his real, absent friends. He is one half of the team behind the monthly open mic event Transdimensional Space Goats, at which he also comperes.
Open mic is open to everyone five mins or less. We like it anyone who fancies it does a poem by a female poet they like/admire.

Doors at 7.30. £2/1 if you are skint :)

I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
What ever I see I swallow immediately
