Outspoken is back at LS6 Thursday 15th February for another fantastic evening of spoken word. Again we welcome host Steve Clarkson who has sourced some of Yorkshire's finest spoken word poets to share their work with us!

Otis Mensah — Otis is a storyteller-rapper-poet with a talent for drawing the poetic from the everyday happenings in his life. The alternative hip-hop artist has risen from a new wave age and era, embodying a contemporary, poetic take on hip-hop music. (we will test the sound before the event to make sure the music's the best quality it can be).

Alicia Fernández —
Alicia was born in Spain and works in Leeds as a translator. Her poems have appeared in Algebra of Owls and Dream Catcher, and in the anthologies Freefall (Wellhouse Publications) and Un/Forced (Ings Poetry). Her debut pamphlet If Moments Were Places was published by Half Moon Books in 2017. She won the title of Chapbook Champion 2017 at Ilkley Literature Festival, awarded by former BBC Poet in Residence Daljit Nagra.
