About this event

Allographic has three forms of live event - our open mic with featured guests every last Sunday of the month; “Allographic presents...”, a loose series of events with bigger names from the spoken word scene, and a burgeoning set of workshops for aspirant poets, storytellers, and other writers and performers.

Attendees of the workshop should consider putting their new-found skills into practice at our free evening event. Find out more at

Hannah Chutzpah is a performance poet and Burning Eye Books author. She also doesn't take herself too seriously. Hannah has been described as ‘fine’ by three therapists, as ‘of good character’ by a high court judge, and as a ‘potential maggot-thrower’ by the Metropolitan police.

She studied creative writing at UEA, and has been performing since 2009. Her poetry is funny, feminist and often heartfelt. On a number of occasions her poetry has made people cry. Apparently in a good way.
