One of Manchester's longest running spoken word and new writing events is back at The King's Arms, Salford on Monday 28th November!

Verbose brings a vibrant mix of spoken word and live literature from a talented bill of open mic acts and two wonderful headliners every month. Expect poetry, prose and everything in between from a real community vibe that gladly welcomes all newcomers.

If you are interested in being part of the open mic, with a four minute slot to read or perform any type of writing, email before 7th November 2023.

He has recent poems in magazines including Poetry Wales, The Rialto, Ambit, The Interpreter’s House, Anthropocene, and The North, and he has performed at Aldeburgh, Ledbury, Kendal Calling and on Radio 4.
