Slam poet and spoken-word star Olivia Gatwood has won millions of YouTube views with performances of poems such as Ode to My Bitch Face and Alternate Universe in Which I Am Unfazed by the Men Who Do Not Love Me – and massive acclaim for her debut collection New American Best Friend, a compelling reflection on her experiences navigating girlhood, puberty, relationships and period underwear growing up in both New Mexico and Trinidad.

Her second book, Life of the Party, will be published later in 2019, but you can preview it tonight at her first ever London headline show. Expect reflections on life, love and feminine power from this clear-eyed, sharp-tongued, punch-packing performer – and remember where you saw her first.
