We have the space from 6-9pm and for the first hour and a half the floor is ours with a welcoming space to share work in progress with the group. Anything goes – a short reading, performance, ponder, poem, joke or anything else. The rougher the better! There will be drinks vouchers and snacks provided for all workshop participants.
For the second hour and a half we’ve invited our friends at QM Records to curate some live music and spoken word. Entertaining us between 7:30 and 9pm will be:
