We've been a bit rubbish keeping you guys updated so here is an extra long blog with alllllll our news! 

It's been a busy ol' time for HQ (and by HQ we mean Ella). We celebrate our 2nd year anniversary on October 12th, so we have a couple of treats coming up. We are very excited to launch our 2nd Anthology of the people that have performed at Evidently over the past year. We have some amazing poets in it including the likes of Sophia Walker, Gerry Potter, Rosie Garland, Gary from Leeds, Tony Walsh, Mab Jones and many more! The Anthology will be on sale on the night, or you can message us and we can send you a copy. We are currently checking the proof and will be sending it off next week to print! 

We have some great guests as well in October including Adele Hampton and Joe Cooper, you can check out the events page here!

We have also launched our new radio show, which is a lot of fun! Every Thursday, 8pm - 9pm on FAB radio. A huge thank you to FAB for letting us host the show, it's a lot of fun and it's been really interesting talking to poets, writers and musicians about their work. If you haven't had a chance to listen, don't worry! They are uploaded onto MixCloud, so you can listen back at your leisure! You should definately check out some of the other shows on FAB too, they have something for everyone! 

Our Word War Slams are insane too! Some amazing competitors already through to the final, so make sure that you get to Three Minute Theatre on the 1st December for the final. 

All this has meant that we are behind on our editing, there's no time like the present so I will leave you with a huge thank you for supporting us! Seriously, we couldn't do it without you! Yes, I am talking to you!

Hello there!

Welcome to the first of our weekly blogs with all the information from our new radio show!

Evidently on Fab Radio is an hour-long show on Thursdays 8pm-9pm. Each week we will have a guest on for discussions, poems, literature, spoken word and the music that inspired them!

This week we had the fabulous Martin Stannage aka Visceral where we talked about his stage name, what spoken word is, our dad’s, hip-hop and Edinburgh amongst other thing.

To celebrate our second year of Evidently, people who have performed at our events over the last year are welcome to submit their poem to our anthology, which will be released on 12th October!

There's no format or length requirements, and it doesn’t have to be the poem that you performed at the event, just whatever you would like to see commemorated! 

All you have to do us send it to us with your full name (as you wish to be credited) and the name of your poem (also as you wish it to be credited). Any questions, please just ask! 


Evidently... Radio!
