Write Lion 7


Rachael Pennell discusses forgotten females from history, whilst Joe Coghlan and Wolf Sunkmanitu discuss poetry


Write Lion 7

To celebrate our forthcoming FREE spoken-word event ‘Scribal Gathering’ (August 4 Nottingham Contemporary Cafe) James Walker had a natter with two of our performers, beat poet Joe Coghlan and dramatist Rachael Pennell. Whilst Aly Stoneman spoke to war veteran Wolf Sunkmanitu about how he uses art, photography and poetry to raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Our musical interludes come courtesy of Omar Hastings and an acoustic number from Michael ‘Fierce’ Frearson, fresh back from his travels around Tibet.
