Calling all poets!

‘Hear me raw’ is a monthly poetry reading hosted on Skype for those people who can’t make live readings due to geography, nerves or simply because sometimes life gets in the way. The brainchild of internationally recognised journalist Hannah Storm and published poet Alex Smith (london_calling79) ‘Hear me raw’ seeks poets who are willing to read live via Skype (audio only at the moment) and to share the beauty of their craft with other poets throughout the UK. For more information or to express an interest, please contact Hannah on or Alex on Twitter @AlexCalling79, on or through his contact form on the site.


Sounds brilliant Alex. Can we listen in even if not reading? Does it have a facebook page, or website or something that you could link to?


I’ll record the whole thing and post it out after the event. Bit easier that way as managing too many listeners and readers over Skype can clog the speeds up. For a taster of what to expect some of the poets who have already signed up can be heard reading here: and on Twitter @PerformanceAnxt
