City Lit presents: Late Lines

An evening of prose and poetry with City Lit writers

Wednesday 13 November 2019

Join us at the Star of Kings Pub, 6.45pm-9pm, for Late Lines, our regular night of spoken word featuring City Lit writers and special guests performing a mix of poetry and prose.

Doors will open at 6.45pm for a 7pm start.

We're delighted to announce that November's event will be headlined by poet and City Lit writer Sovel Cunningham


Did you hear the one about The Postwoman, Human Resources Professional and Poet? No? Well, they are all parts of Sovel, who now uses her skills for writing, spoken word and five decades of life experience to support others in communicating their truth through prose and poetry. She explores and unpicks the meaning of being human and "its" interaction with the world and others.

Sovel has shared her poetry from Slough to Findhorn. Her debut book, Marshalled In Ranks - The Rearrangement of Words, is based on an observational discernment of the world. It includes illustrations, and each poem is prefaced with the spark of its creation. For those who have a love for listening, Marshalled in Ranks - The  Audio Selection is a professional recording of twelve poems, all taken from the book.

Robert Holden, author of Loveability and Life Loves You, co-written with Louise Hay said, "Sovel's poems are meditations for the soul. They help me to more open and more present to my life."

Please note that this event has been moved from the original date of 30 October.


Tickets are £3. Book via Eventbrite >

Please be aware that the venue can be only be accessed via a flight of stairs.
