-Headliners-

From Our Society:

Elri Vaughan is a BA English student at UoB, and has been writing as long as she can remember. Since coming to UoB, she has performed at various poetry nights, including Grizzly Pear and MHAWBS’s charity open mic. While she has dabbled in plays and prose, she works most often with poetry, in which she writes a lot about nature and relationships, attempts to land humour, and reveals more about her personal life than perhaps she should.

Liv Driver is currently in her second year studying English at UoB, and, since moving to Birmingham, has developed a fierce love for the city and it’s spoken word poetry scene. Aside from this, she has been writing monologues and unfinished screenplays since school, and explores themes of relationships and mental health in her work with a raw, therapeutic honesty.

From Further Afield:

Slava Rudin is pursuing a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Luke Kennard. He was born in Russia in 1990, and first came to live in England in 2008. He likes Taoism, Nietzsche & levity. In literature he prefers pulsing texts, hot to the touch.
