Simon Coops - PoetsClub op zaterdag

(The Netherlands, 0)

This grandson of a pastor and son of an visual artist has emerged as a filmmaker/artist who prefers to call himself an inventor. He became a poet when he noticed that girls liked it when he said he wanted to be one. Once when he read something during a date, it turned out to be fun too. He thinks the PoetsClub is the best initiative in Rotterdam.

Poetry x Poetsclub Rotterdam - Open Mic
Nowhere else in this city is poetry so intensely experienced and lived as at PoetsClub Rotterdam. Every first Wednesday of the month all the poets of the city gather in Café De Schouw for an evening full of new poems. Everyone is welcome and is invited by hosts Jeroen Naaktgeboren and Miguel Santos to read at least one new poem in the packed pub. On the festival Friday and Saturday frequent PoetsClub poets perform their poems on the foyer stage in LantarenVenster.
