Book Jive Live

Book Jive Live


This event has been and gone.

Live spoken word event with a reading and Q&A from multi-award winning children's author and poet, Joseph Coelho. Joseph writes across several mediums for children including stage plays, picture books, non-fiction and middle grade. He wrote and presented Teach Poetry - a 10-part BBC online series that aims to make the writing of poetry fun and accessible to all.

Then we have a fabulous selection of unpublished writers who will perform on the open mic, featuring picture books, MG, YA, poetry and more, so expect to hear some diverse emerging voices!

Interesting in performing? Submit a video of you performing your 5 minute piece of children's or YA prose or poetry via Wetransfer to before 12.00 noon Fri 29th October. Any issues with recording/sending, just email for advice. We can't wait to hear your words!

All profits for this event go to Magic breakfast, a charity which provides healthy breakfasts to children living with food insecurity.
