A brand new UK tour of poetry & performance – from Lydia Towsey, Shruti Chauhan and Jean Binta Breeze MBE

Three the Hard Way: Workshop and Manchester Literature Festival Performance

Only My Shelf to Blame


As I have mentioned previously, I’m a writer at all times of the day and night. I’d always enjoyed writing as a child, but my writing journey started back when I was at sixth form (around 6 years ago). After being published in a couple of anthologies and competing in the Wordsmith poetry slam, I joined Young Identity.
And with a small proportion of Young Identity, I had the pleasure of being the curtain raising act for Three the Hard Way: a collective made up of Lydia Towsey, Shruti Chauhan and one of my favourite poets, Jean Binta Breeze. The performance was part of Manchester Literature Festival 2015.
Three the Hard Way is a poetic and song filled journey that explores women’s experiences and different cultures across three generations and three continents. All of these women are experienced and talented poets, in their own right.
