Performing your work

This is a School of English event.

For our first Creative Writing summer event, Kat Peddie and Dragan Todorovic will lead a workshop on performing your work — preparation, techniques, and finding opportunities to do so. We're delighted to welcome Neelam Saaredia-Brayley, who will join them to speak about her own experience as a writer and performer. 

Neelam Saaredia-Brayley is an alumni of Kent’s English and Creative Writing and Creative Writing MA, and is a performer who works with illustrators, musicians and contemporary dancers to create multi-disciplinary pieces that are completely unique to Kent’s poetry scene. She is a highly in-demand performer, having appeared at, among others, Jawdance, TongueTANGLE, Margate Literary Festival, bOing! International Family Festival, Canterbury Festival, Marlowe Theatre, Ramsgate Music Hall, ERIC Festival, POW! Festival, Turner Contemporary, Hammer and Tongue Cambridge. Neelam also regularly performs and works with Gulbenkian.

In 2019 she was awarded Arts Council funding to develop her first spoken word poetry show; Queer Brown Skin, a project emerging from her MA work at Kent.
