How often is it that a poet with the critical standing of Selena Godden publishes their first collection 20 years into their career? This is more than a sweeping up exercise, more than a greatest hits retrospective. Salena takes us on a hair-raising ride through the process of a writer, the highs, the lows, the drinks, the lovers, the sex (especially the sex) that she has embraced and shared with audiences over 20 years.
Salena has performed twice at Verve so far, both times as part of a Nymphs and Thugs Showcase, and both times she has brought the house down! Her workshops have been wonderful too. We’re HUGE fans!
