A chance to hone your writing and spoken word skills with some of the UK's best poets. This month's masterclass is with Bridget Minamore.

Bridget Minamore is a writer from and based in south-east London.

She is part of the creative team behind Brainchild Festival and works with charity My Body Back, a project to empower women who have experienced sexual violence. She has an English degree from UCL, is the Digital Officer for British African theatre company Tiata Fahodzi, and runs poetry workshops - mostly for young people - around the UK.

Bridget has worked with the National Theatre and the Royal Opera House, and read her poems at places including the Roundhouse, Latitude Festival, the Bristol Old Vic and the Southbank Centre. She has spoken on panels and at events including #IRLpanel at Twitter UK, the London Festival of Education and the NUS’ Black Women’s Conference.

In 2011 she represented the UK at the International Biennale in Rome with Point Blank Poets, and in 2013 was shortlisted to be London’s first Young Poet Laureate. Bridget was chosen as one of The Hospital Club’s Emerging Creatives in 2015, and more recently, as one of Speaking Volumes’ ‘40 Stars of Black British Literature’.

As a journalist, Bridget has written for publications like the Guardian, Pitchfork, The Pool, and The Debrief. She mostly writes about London, pop culture, race, and feminism, as well as the intersections between them.

Her first pamphlet Titanic (Out-Spoken Press) came out in May 2016.

The masterclass is open to all ages and abilities. Participants are only expected to bring their own writing utensils, a notepad/tablet/laptop and the poem(s) they wish to work on, although as mentioned there is an option to write something new. There are 25 spaces available. Any queries or concerns please email outspokenldn@gmail.com

All participants who attend the masterclass will also be entitled to a 50% discount to the live show happening in October at The Forge.

[This event is held in the upstairs Foundry room]
