Poet in the City Producers present Build Your Warrior a night of empowerment and learning on how to care for ourselves whilst fighting for our rights. Join us to celebrate feminists, the feminist movement and personal empowerment.  Hosted by Mama Tokus hear poetry from south-west-based artists Sammy Paloma and Holly Moberley on the relationship between care and feminism in the work towards equality as we ask 'how do we take care of ourselves whilst fighting for our rights?' 

The has been specially produced and programmed by seven brilliant young people aged 18-25 from the area, as part of Poet in the City’s Young Producers Programme. 

Mama Tokus

Mama Tokus is a writer, singer, performance poet and MC. She performs amusing spoken word on womanhood, technology, language and music.

Holly Moberley

A poet based in the South West, Holly writes about the feminine gaze, queerness and pop-culture with a savoire-faire kind of intimacy. Her work was shortlisted for the Bridport Prize in October 2021 and was Bristol’s LYRA Slam Champion in April of the same year.  And having managed all of this while graduating from Bath Spa University with an MA in Creative Writing in 2022, she is clearly one to look out for!

Sammy Paloma

Sammy is an artist, transgirl and genderwitch living in Bristol. Her work is on being a body, and not being one, listening to faeries, devotion, trans stuff, and necromancy. Her book length poem about Bigfoot, 'There’s Always Things Falling Out The Sky', a collaboration with Roxy Topia & Paddy Gould was published earlier this year by Pink Sands Studio.
