Speakeasy Online Poetry Evening
Hosted by The Write Box!
The Open Mic Section is now FULL!
Chaucer Cameron is a poet and poetry filmmaker as well as a curator and workshop facilitator in poetry-film. Her debut pamphlet, In an Ideal World I’d Not Be Murdered, is a part–memoir/part–fiction collection exploring the impact of prostitution.
“These poems ring out like gunshots in the night; they will wake you from your sleep. Yet despite its distilled directness, this book is lifted by both mystery and surprise. Listen for the songs emerging from the dark centre of this transformative work of experience and survival.’ Jacqueline Saphra.
Her poems have been published in many journals, magazines & online, including Under the Radar, Poetry Salzburg, The North, Blue Nib, The Interpreter’s House, Poetry Shed, and Ink Sweat & Tears.
Chaucer’s poetry-films have been screen-published in some of the journals and sites now accepting mixed media, such as Atticus Review. She also collaborates with Helen Dewbery to produce ‘poetry-film collections’ screened at film festivals in the UK and abroad, including Reel Poetry Film Festival in Houston, Texas, Zebra Poetry Film Festival in Berlin, Versopolis /Review, Athens Poetry Festival, and MIX Conference at Bath Spa University.
Chaucer has performed at Ledbury Poetry Festival in a live performance combining British Sign Language poetry and video poetry (2017), Bath Fringe Festival Still Points Moving World (2014), and her poetry and monologues have been performed at Cheltenham Everyman.
She has co-edited three poetry anthologies: Salt on the Wind – poetry in response to Ruth Stone (Elephant’s Footprint, 2015), The Museum of Light (Yew Tree Press, 2014), and Nothing in the Garden, (Elephant’s Footprint, 2014).
Chaucer is joined by an eclectic mix of wonderful open mic poets from near and far! Enjoy with us another evening of magical wordery from the comfort of your own home!
