‘Dressed as Love’ – Book launch by Jess Green

Thursday, February 1, 2024

Launch of BBC Slam Champion, Jess Green‘s poetry collection ‘Dressed As Love’

Power walks in dressed like your best friend, offers to pay the bills and buy the drinks. Tells you to get some sleep because they’ve got this, they’ll keep watch, stop anyone getting in. Then Power leaves in the night and clears out your house. This is where this book begins. When Power’s taken everything. How do you get it back?

“This is Jess Green’s best work to date. Tough, tender and insightful” – Molly Naylor

“Somehow Jess manages to be hard hitting in a way that’s so subtle you don’t realise until the bruises come up. She’s amazing!”- Scroobius Pip

What are ‘Pay What You Can’ tickets?

We believe that the arts should be accessible for all. For this reason the event will be ‘Pay What You Can’, meaning that you decide how much you can or want to pay. This expands access to the arts for those who may not have been able to participate otherwise, or gives others the chance to support those who cannot by paying a bit extra.

The donation options for the event range from £3 to £20. You can choose to pay whichever price you can afford or would like to pay – thank you.
