About Verity Spott

I'm a poet, musician and events host in Brighton. I've had several books / pamphlets of poetry published including "Gideon" (Barque Press), "Balconette" (Veer Books), "Three Poems" - with Megan Alan (Sad Press) and "Effort to No" (Iodine). I've had work published into various journals published in various geographic dots, and my work is being or has been translated into Spanish, Greek, Portugese, Korean and Czech. 

I'm also a musician, and work generally through improvisation playing cello, bass, balloons, dictaphone, speakers, stones etc etc. I've got a few long term music projects including Binnsclagg (noise poetry concrete breakcore pointilism), Four Manatees (playful psych sound tipwave fun) and In Threads (free jazz / improv). I also play music on my own and in ad-hoc collaborations. 

Finally I curate and facilitate music, poetry and art in events and through informal mentorship and teaching. I work as a support worker, and through this encourage and facilitate artistic endeavors for people that might otherwise have difficulty doing so. I have taught poetry to people on the autistic spectrum for a number of years. I also teach music occasionally. I run and co-host an event called Horseplay which is a free performance event that runs on the last Thursday of every month, and has done for ten years.

I feel self conscious setting up this page. It feels like something one shouldn't do. Something to almost feel ashamed for. But I work a lot and I am still skint. Every little helps. If you do want to help me out with my various projects I will be extremely grateful.
