Makes me think of a modern-day Woolf...her f*** it attitude is infectious, you can't help but like her

Lisa SmithNY

Much as I like poetry, I tend to avoid evenings that are devoted to it...so, it’s always good when someone like Sophia Blackwell comes along to remind us just how important the lyrics are. If the idea of listening to poetry sounds boring, forget it. Sophia writes and performs incredible verse that is relevant, vital, passionate and great fun. Do not miss an opportunity to experience this lady’s work.

Lisa SmithNY

Her poems often carry the same sense of gleeful abandon as a child let loose with a dressing-up box. At the same time, there is a fierce, shaping intelligence at work here, and a quiet but persistent note of melancholy.

Strident, beautiful, crusading...a vamp radiating passion.'

Blackwell's poems deliver what poetry usually only promises...astonishingly intricate, precise, witty, self-aware and formally complete

Lisa SmithNY

Sophistication incarnate- an artist who combines humour and original social commentary with stunning visual performance.

All I can add is to say if they taught poets like this in schools, I'd never have to cringe when that conversation comes along and I admit that what I like to write ‘actually, kind of includes, um...’ (gulp) ‘poetry.

Lisa SmithNY

A classic work from a toughly modern poet. Full of such contradictions, Sophia Blackwell's work is as sassy and sexy as the poet herself with a side order of innocent and dreamy. Worth a lot more than the cover price!

Some of Sophia Blackwell's poems read like Nico should be singing them to John Cale's viola, some as if Shakespeare's slut sister taught him all he knew, others are as new as the next dawn. Dirty, juicy, knowing, open- works for me.

Lisa SmithNY

If Amy Winehouse wrote poetry, she might sound like this...a thrilling half-hour set at this year's Glastonbury...her work has emotional depth as well as immediate impact.

This young woman is destined for stardom and the girl with the glitterball lipstick may be shining for a long time to come.'
