Support Act - Sally Mitchell

It was at a Pint of Poetry night in Autumn 2018 that Sally took her first (terrifying) step on stage to perform spoken word. It was the lovely feedback and encouragement from the local poets which has turned that one off personal challenge into a new hobby and journey of self discovery.

She is thoroughly enjoying writing and performing in surrounding towns and cities and connecting with some inspiring, talented people. She likes to write about happy times and perform things which make her smile.

Headline Act - J.S.Watts

J.S.Watts is a poet and novelist who, it is said, weaves the fantastical and the literary with other vibrant strands to create glowing, multi-faceted writing. Her work appears in publications all around the world and has been broadcast on the BBC and Independent Radio. She lives in South Cambridgeshire and has performed her poetry across much of Britain, though there are still places she’d love to visit if only they’d have her.

To date, J.S. has published six books: two poetry collections, “Cats and Other Myths” and “Years Ago You Coloured Me”, plus a multi-award nominated SF poetry pamphlet, “Songs of Steelyard Sue” and her most recent 2018 pamphlet, “The Submerged Sea”. Her novels are “A Darker Moon” – dark fiction and “Witchlight” – paranormal.  Her next novel, “Old Light” is due out this summer.
