Event cancelled – Mor Surf and Sea Poetry

28/10/2023 @ 13:30 - 15:00


We are sorry to say this event has been cancelled.

Tickets for this event are now available directly from Morrab Library – please contact us to book. Entry is now free but donations are welcomed to help support the library (suggested £5). 

A live spoken word event, where Mor poets will share poetry from their new book, Mordardh. This all-women poetry collective created ‘Morvoren: the poetry of sea swimming’ in 2022. They are back with ‘Mordardh’, which is Cornish for breaking wave. Their new project is supported by Arts Council England and involved talking to surfers across Cornwall – why surf? Whether you’re a seasoned surfer, sea swimmer or simply someone who appreciates the power of words, do come along and hear 

Led by Ella Walsworth-Bell and a shoal of mer-poets: Kerry Vincent, Abi Ottley, Kate Barden, Ulrike Duran Bravo.

With guest poet Megan Chapman, aka MCMC Spoken, a lyrical rhyming wizard. Her unique rhythmic style and cutting content offers a mesmerising performance. Her poetic and hip-hop delivery, infused with beats, strings and vocals, is beautifully raw and captures humanity. In 2022 she was a guest poet on Radio 4, and she performs throughout Cornwall, across the UK, and internationally. She’s shared her creativity at festivals, including Womad and Glastonbury.
