Black History Month with WWB at Balsall Heath Library

Following our well received performance at the Library of Birmingham on 28/10/2017 our next stop was Balsall Heath Library on Thursday 2/11/2017. Same people, same set, different surroundings. It was a pleasure to perform in the beautiful setting of Balsall Heath Library. Following our very well received set there was even an impromptu drumming lesson.

Black History Month with WWB at the Library of Birmingham

Six poets and two drummers disturbed the usual quiet of the Library of Birmingham in Saturday 28th October. Under the heading ‘Independence and Sankofa’ they delivered spoken word and song to the heartbeat of the drums. Our sponsors, Writing West Midlands, were so impressed we’ve been asked to do it all over again at Balsall Heath Library on Thursday 2nd November at 4.30 p.m. Catch us there if you missed us on Saturday, or see us again if you enjoyed us on Saturday.

The lineup will be the same. (Back row) Sue, Ita, Michael, Predencia, Shirley. (Front row) Conrad, Asha, Ricky.

Exciting WWB & BCU collaboration

From- Shirley Lloyd Sound-Stories-ident-01-2.jpg 14_06_17

Over the past year or so, members of Writers Without Borders had the opportunity to work with Birmingham City University to record authors own written work, as spoken word. This was a unique and exciting collaboration and with the post production talents and facilities of the University students and staff, WWB will have a collection of beautiful work to share with the world. We are hoping that a book which will accompany the CD and online recordings.

With a significant anniversary for WWB coming up in 2018, we hope that this material will make a statement of the groups history, and future intent. We thank everyone that has been involved in, not only the recordings, but the considerable organisation and co-ordination of the whole event.

Look out for further updates as they become available.
