A Lovely Word at Homotopia

A Lovely Word at Homotopia 28Oct

A Lovely Word is back at its spiritual and literal home; the Everyman Bistro, for this Special Homotopia edition.


A Lovely Word is Liverpool’s most eclectic poetry night, featuring two halves of open mic poets, and a headliner beginning the first half. Hosted by Alex Ferguson and Lyndsay Price, this free event is a fun, relaxed and friendly evening of performance poetry. 


Jay Hulme is an award winning transgender performance poet, speaker and educator from Leicester. Alongside his writing and performing he teaches poetry, works to raise awareness of LGBTQIA rights and inclusion, and performs sensitivity reads on manuscripts. 

Jay writes books for readers of all ages, from age four all the way through to adulthood, and enjoys keeping people guessing as to what he’ll be writing next. 

When he’s not working he enjoys and exploring old buildings, especially churches. As you read this he’s probably standing on top of a church tower, just taking in the view. 

Jay has featured on and worked with, TED talkNationwide Building Society’s “Voices” advertising campaign, Amnesty InternationalThe Centre for Literacy in Primary EducationStop Funding Hate, and The Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Awards. More about his work here.
