Verse Matters is a supportive space for spoken word, storytelling & music, showcasing the work of talented people in a friendly safe environment. 

These times call for solidarity and for resistance. We need outlets through which to articulate our anger, our sadness, our joy. Verse Matters exists to provide this space. 


Verse Matters is a feminist bi-monthly spoken word event. Each event has a mix of experienced and new performers and we are proud to prioritise crafting a diverse line up. We give space to narratives that are seldom heard elsewhere.

Verse Matters was founded in July 2015 by Rachel Bower and is a supportive space for poetry, spoken word, storytelling, music and comedy, showcasing the work of talented people in a friendly, safe environment.
