🔥 WHAT THEY SAY… 🔥
“This is feminism at its ruthless best.” – Blouinart
“To put it bluntly, I’d never come across a spoken word night with such a fantastic lineup. ‘How have I never come across this before?’, I kept asking myself, ‘this is everything I’ve ever wanted from a night out…’
I was blown away. I left feeling inspired, with renewed confidence in my own abilities, and almost missed my tube stop on the way home trying to write down scraps of poetry and prose.
Not only is That’s What She Said a great place to see talented literary performers, for everyone and not just women, but it provides a space for women to shout and scream their anger, their frustrations, their desires; a space without censorship, without objectification and without the dreaded “it must be her time of the month” quip. I think For Books’ Sake is doing some really important work.” (Recent review of one of our London shows)
