Sadie Davidson is a writer, poet, performer, producer and playwright. She is also a former stripper and recovering addict which she feels colours both her life and work wonderfully. She is the author of “Tales From The Estate”, hosts the long running open mic “Dangerous Poetry” and is the founder of Essex Poetry Collective.
She recorded and produced her own spoken word album “Council House and Silent” and her debut play “Bare Lies” premiered in July as part of Southend Festival, in an immersive, site specific location.
Sadie has performed at a number of festivals and literary events around the country, including Diva Fest 2018, Vout-O-Reennees, and a performance at the Royal Festival Hall. She was a semi-finalist in the 2018 U.K Slam Championships and was a support act for Holly Mcnish in Bournemouth in September, was the winner of the Bookie Slam in Margate, as well as performing at Spoken Word Paris in September. In 2019, she will be taking on World Slam Champion Harry Baker for the Kent Poetry Championship.
Her second book, “The Poverty Guide Handbook”, is due out in early 2019.
“Sadie Davidson..in a spoken word set that bit with lightning like fury and machine gun delivery. This was edgy and dangerous poetry.”
Jac Bottjer, Channel 4-featured poet / Poetry In Commotion
“This knocked me sideways. This was about something. Something real. It’s strong stuff. Just like poetry ought to be and – sometimes- used to be”
Anthony Haden – Guest, British Socialite and journalist.
“Sadie Davidson should be on everyone’s ‘must see’ list. Wise, funny and extremely clever. She puts many ‘contenders to the throne’ in the spoken word shade. The best thing to come out of Essex since Depeche Mode.”
Ralph Dartford, A Firm of Poets
