New Blood is a monthly poetry event at The Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden. We promote up and coming young poets, booking them to read alongside more established names. The line-up for September is:

Annie Katchinska – An exciting young poet, she is a winner of the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award and came second in this year’s Christopher Tower Poetry Prize.

Heather Phillipson – A brilliantly talented young poet that crafts poems full of both wit and affect.

John Stammers - One of the best poets around with two outstanding collections from Picador (Panoramic Lounge-Bar, Stolen Love Behavior). He has won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection and was shortlisted for the Whitbread Poetry Award.

New Blood kicks off around 7.30pm and entrance fees are £5/3. Floorspots are available on the night.
