Fen Speak February with Leanne Moden
February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Fen Speak is Ely’s regular poetry, spoken word and storytelling evening featuring guest performers and a popular open mic. All are welcome – poets, spoken word artists, non-fiction or fiction writers, or those just wanting to listen! This month we are delighted to welcome back Fen Speak co-founder Leanne Moden as our featured poet.
Leanne Moden is a poet and performer, who has performed at Bestival, the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival, Trinity College Cambridge, and the Royal Albert Hall in London. She has shared her poetry as part of the TEDx WOMEN talk at UCL in 2016, and done sets at WOMAD, the Edinburgh Fringe, and the Nottingham Poetry Festival. Leanne was Fenland Poet Laureate in 2013 and she founded Fen Speak with Elaine Ewart in the same year. She’s also a founding member of the ‘28 Sonnets Later’ poetry collective, and she currently runs the Crosswords Spoken Word Open Mic nights in Nottingham. Leanne’s poetry has been published widely in print and online, and her work has appeared in exhibitions in the UK, the USA and Israel.
