Weston Lit Fest: Rhyme Against the Tide with guest poet Saili Katebe

From 7pm, two supper options designed by Global Kitchen, members of the town’s refugee community,  reflecting memories and tastes of home that they’d like to share.   Poetry from 8pm

Join us in Loves for an extra special slam instalment of Rhyme Against the Tide featuring poetry sets from our current slam winner Jaidah McDill and guest poet Saili Katebe.

Marvel at the local talent as a line-up of spoken word super slammers take to the stage in the hopes of impressing the audience and becoming the tenth ‘Rhyme against the Tide’ Slam Winner!

Saili Katebe

Saili Katebe is a Zambian-born writer and performer based in the South West. Often writing under the pen name of The Blissful Nomad, he uses poetry and theatre to exercise his curiosity and perfect the art of recklessness, challenging his language and its hidden music.
