Stirred: Sketches and Glitter

Stirred (undiscovered) on Monday 28th July was one to remember, many thanks to the guests, open micers and all who attended and made the night very special. Open Micers were:

Melanie Rees, Sarah Miller, Andrew Lawson, Jasmine Chatfield, Rohan Beck, Loz Webb, Emma Wootton, and Ben Willems. We also had a ten minute guest slot from Sarah Fletcher which was really amazing, find video of her poem The Wrestler and the Sailor’s Daughter here.

There was a superabundance of participatory tasks that night, Jess and Pip set their own task with glittery prizes, which was to sketch them in the break, specifically their FACES, winning sketches:

Their guest set was really emotional and moving, culminating in their collaborative poem written that day for Stirred, 8 Unnamed Women in the Bible:

Nadine Andie’s guest slot was worth waiting for, here’s a poem she wrote in the Stirred: Hidden workshop with Anna Percy’s prompt, which you can find more of here. The prompt to put a message in a bottle has been a really good one. Sarah Miller also responded to this prompt on the night and Andrew Lawson’s piece you can find here. But here is Nadine Andie’s poem!

I will post up the responses to the mystery bag task in another blog as this is enough for now I think. Looking forward seeing you all again at the next Stirred on Monday 29th September, theme is: Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton.



The Stirred quad is formed of Rebecca Audra Smith, Anna Percy, Jasmine Chatfield and Lenni Sanders.
