This section of the blog acts as a record of Stirred’s history and as a showcase for our guests. We are not a moneyed event, we are run voluntarily and we really appreciate the support guests show us by giving up their time and in some cases traveling down to Manchester in order to guest for Stirred.
Stirred has been running since October 2010. Our guest policy focuses on providing a platform for all poets of feminist inclination. We do give regular Stirred attenders guest slots to show our appreciation for their support, and it is part of the process of Stirred to encourage growth. We like to have seen the poet perform, at Stirred or other night, so we are familiar with their voice. We often give guest spots to developing poets as it is part of our ethos to encourage new voices on the poetry scene. We can be recommended guests, if you send us a link to a reading you’ve given then that would be perfect. Contact us most easily on facebook Stirred Poetry.
