Dear poets, wannabe poets, avid performers and open mic veterans all,
It’s almost time for the annual Shore Poets Open Night, which means it’s time for YOU to start polishing up your best poems to perform for our warm and friendly April audience!
This year the Open Night takes place on Sunday 27th April at our usual time, 7.45pm (doors 7.15pm) and our usual venue, Henderson’s at St John’s. There’ll be time for twelve poets to read for five minutes each, and slots are already filling up! Email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP in order to make sure you get chance to perform.
Please note that we want to give priority to new readers. If you’ve read for us before, you can still sign up, but we’ll prioritise newbies first!
There’ll be a feature reading from Alan Gillis, author of the poetry collections Somebody Somewhere, Hawks and Doves (shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize), and Here Comes The Night (all Gallery Press), and of course, all our usual delights including live music and the infamous lemon cake. More info on all that — and on our March event! — later, but for now… email@example.com to sign up!
See who read last year, along with some photos from the 2013 Open Night, right here.
See you there!
