In the 50's the Beat poets, shunned from literary establishments, performed spoken word in underground clubs... And then created counter culture...

Howl provides a space for the best spoken word artists in Birmingham to speak freely, no restraint, express themselves, provide food for thought and entertain.


Joelle Taylor

Joelle Taylor is a spoken word artist, poet, playwright, author and cultural terrorist. She has performed across the UK as well as internationally for the British Council (Zimbabwe, Brazil, Botswana) taking in a diverse range of venues from Dingwalls, the 100 Club, the 02 Arena, the Royal Festival Hall and Ronnie Scott's to the Royal Court, the Globe, the ICA, Buckingham Palace and both Pentonville and Holloway prisons.

She curates and hosts Mother Foucault, an evening of intellectual uprising, powerful poetry and furious dance - with guests including Will Self, Sabrina Mahfouz, Salena Godden and Vanessa Kisuule.

She was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Society Arts in 2015 as well as being named as one of Southbank Centre's Nelson Mandela Change Makers for positively affecting cultural Britain.


Jasmine Gardosi

Jasmine Gardosi is a former Cheltenham Poetry Festival, Mix It Up Midlands and International Pangaea Poetry Slam Champion. She has appeared on BBC Radio 3's The Verb, at Glastonbury Festival and was shortlisted for Birmingham Poet Laureate 2016/18.

As a former BBC Arts Young Creative she has produced short-form film content including How To Be A Poet With Dyslexia. She has since worked as a Poet in Residence for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, directed a Shakespeare-inspired youth arts festival in Tamworth Castle Grounds under the Mighty Creatives, and is currently collaborating with Autin Dance Theatre on a sexual health show combining dance and spoken word.

Jasmine is interested in taboo, its deconstruction and its power over language. Since delivering a talk at TEDxBrum's International Women's Day 2014 exploring the taboo surrounding menstruation, she continues to run workshops that combine creativity with sex education and other awkward topics. She runs West Midlands Poets' Place, as well as regular school and community workshops. She likes to talk about weird things in unweird places - kind of like her, everywhere
