Fausta Joly has been writing and performing her poetry since Summer 2018. Performance introduced her to an incredible buzzing community in London and helped her hone a unique, rhythmic style.
Her work has been featured in podcasts, zines, international poetry film festivals, and she is about to hit the recording studio, to commence an exciting new EP project.
Collaboration has played a huge part in her career so far, working with Holly Rush Dance, devising their Super Hero Comic world which was included in Manchester HOME's PUSH 2021 Festival. Proudest moment to date, would be the featured poet and consultant for Transient Light Tarot deck with artist friend and author of the deck - Ari Wisner. Pre order your copy now!
Aside from Joly Licks, there are a couple fantastic poetry nights that have called upon Fausta's hosting talents:
As a finalist of Hammer & Tongue Hackney, in 2019 she became familiar with the hosts and, during lockdown - was asked to become a team member. She's been hosting with them ever since! Catch her 2nd Thursday, every month at The Book Club in Shoreditch. (You can even hear her uplifting tones at the head of Lemn Sisay radio show Slam Poets ep.)
Rebel Soapbox - meeting Jenny Foulds, and seeing a female led night, filled Fausta with so much joy and she instantly recognised that Jenny had something she wanted to be apart of. When Jenny advertised for a helping hand at her nights, Fausta leapt at the chance! Rebel Soapbox is held in Brighton, every month - currently at the Brunswick Pub.
Fausta is also available for content commission. Putting her poetic spin on whatever it is you do. Whether it's copy for a bio, event, or something a little different - together we can make your vision pop! Email now to start the conversation.
