Loud Poets: Comic Book Love


Boom! Pow! Kersplat! This is my favourite poem about superheroes (of which there are more than you would expect):

The Loud Poets Launch is scarily soon now, and Freddie is going to be one of the performers. Its going to be an incredible event! Here, see for yourself:

I think a lot of people have quite a fixed idea of what performance poetry is, and about performance poetry in general. A lot people just assume its not for them, and assume it

Obscure metaphors, whiny broken hearts, monotonous droning voices and tweed, that kind of thing. Well, fair enough. That kind of thing isn’t for me either, and certainly not for the Loud Poets. The launch is going to be funny, scary, important, meaningful, awesome and well, loud. The clue is in the name.

I’ll be posting more videos of Loud Poets performing over the next few days, to give people a little teaser. Hopefully if you can make it but aren’t sure whether or not you want to go, they ought to sway you. And if you can’t or won’t be there, well nevermind – I get to share some awesome poetry videos anyway. Enjoy!Loud Poets Cover
