Just Write Speaks 2018 – 24/04/18: Genevieve L Walsh and Rose Condo


Just Write Speaks is back, guys! Another edition of the live spoken word event hosted by Bunbury Publishing. This event is a feast of spectacular poetry from Genevieve L Walsh and Rose Condo.

Geneviève L. Walsh is a Yorkshire-raised Londoner and writer of poetry that ‘shines an unforgiving light on contemporary life and manners, doing so with words which are full of sometimes shocking honesty’ (WF Live). She’s taken her work about alienation, inebriation and pop music to every kind of stage from tiny backstreet pubs to major festivals since her stage debut in 2012. She is proudly Epileptic, proudly Bisexual and unavoidably Goth.

Rose Condo is a multiple slam-winning Canadian poet, Rose’s work is ‘honest, unflinching and deeply human’ (Dominic Berry, Glastonbury Poet in Residence 2017). She has performed across the UK, including supporting Shane Koyczan and Hollie McNish. Her show ‘How To Starve An Artist’ was Saboteur’s Runner Up Best Spoken Word Show 2017. Rose hosts Queenie’s Coffee House Nights at the Lawrence Batley Theatre and runs creative writing workshops for young people and adults.
