Burning Eye Presents an intimate soft spoken poetry night, featuring poets such as Rebecca Tantony, Carmina Masoliver, Keith Jarrett and Nadia Malik. It will be a beautiful night, of story telling from love to motherhood.
Rebecca Tantony Poet
Rebecca Tantony is a writer and facilitator driven to understand the messy and wild human experience in greater depth. Living and working in Bristol, she has read on the BBC and Radio 4 and her writing has been described as ‘mesmerising’ in the Guardian.

Carmina Masoliver is a poet from south London, and founder of She Grrrowls feminist arts nights. Her small chapbook was published by Nasty Little Press, and she recently published a She Grrrowls anthology with Burning Eye Books
Carmina’s collection “Circles” will be out with Burning Eye Books in October.
Keith J poetry
Keith Jarrett, poet not pianist. Living and working in London, as a spoken word artist and educator.
In Selah, his debut collection, Jarrett interrogates what is lost when one seeks to shape something new – namely his Black British Identity – from disparate ingredients such as migrant parents, a religious upbringing and living in inner city London. His poetry dances an awkward shuffle as he negotiates and seeks to reconcile what he inherits from his Caribbean roots, what he has lost and who he is becoming on this British Island.
