Gobs and globbers gather round for the 9th Gobjaw poetry & spoken word open mic!We will be at Avalon Cafe in Bermondsey on the 5 October spouting words, spouting sentences, spouting spit and click clacking. 



Gobbers and globbers of London and beyond, get your tongues untwisted because Gobjaw is back.

We will be at The Odds Camberwell on 30 AUGUST (sweet sweet bank holiday). In case you forgot the drill: we’ll start at 7pm but you can come sign up from 6.30pm, bring your zines and books for sale & of-course Gobjaw Zine 7 (from the before times) will be up for grabs. 

We are looking for an artist based in or around London who wants to collaborate with us on the next Gobjaw Zine!

We are open to all forms of visual art and you must be able to swing by our upcoming open mic (30 August at The Odds in Camberwell) to listen to the poetry & get a feel of the ︎vibes. 

If you’d like to work with us on this please send over some examples of your work - 2/3 images or a link to portfolio to:
