A Lovely Word featuring Malaika Kegode

Admission Free
Start Time 20:00
End Time 22:00

A Lovely Word, downstairs at the Everyman, is Liverpool’s most eclectic poetry night.

It features two halves of open mic poets, and a headliner beginning the first half. Hosted by Alex Ferguson and team, this free event is a fun, relaxed and friendly evening of performance poetry.

Malaika Kegode is an award-winning writer, performer and creative producer based in Bristol. Her work is focused on uplifting and celebrating the overlooked and misunderstood. Beginning her arts career as a performance poet in 2014, Malaika has since developed her practice to encompass theatre, radio and film writing.

Her gig-theatre show Outlier, an autobiographical piece about addiction and isolation in rural England performed with prog-rock band Jakabol was the first piece of new writing to appear on Bristol Old Vic’s main stage in 2021. Malaika’s work has been featured on BBC Radio 4 and Black Ballad. Her poetry collections Requite and Thalassic are published by Burning Eye Books.

Malaika also works in film. She has been an associate curator at Watershed in Bristol, a resident at Encounters Film Festival and was the 2021 recipient of the Elspeth Kydd Memorial Prize for Film Studies.
