Lettie Mckie

Lettie moved away from the rolling Kentish hills five years ago and has now travelled to the furthest corners of London on her trusty steed: a well loved Dawes bicycle. She's wobbled her way to poetry readings in Wood Green and wine tastings in Uxbridge. When not earning her daily bread in museum education you'll find her writing or more often than not performing a poem at one of the city's various spoken word open mic nights. She'll cover anything vaguely 'cultural' from her favourite fringe theatre shows to art gallery lates and other idiosyncratic events. Follow her on Twitter or read her blog lettiemckie.wordpress.com
