Inky Fingers Open Mic Night
28 June, 8-11pm
featuring JANE MCKIE and ALAN BISSETT
and YOU, on our famous open stage
The Inky Fingers Open Mic takes place in the main room of the Forest Café every fourth Tuesday of the month, from 8-11pm. It’s free to come and free for anyone to perform, regardless of style, experience, or identity. It is big and celebratory and welcoming and fun. We want to hear from everybody. We want your poems, your rants, your ballads, your short stories, your diaries, your experimental texts, your heart, your mind, your body. We want the essay on your summer holidays you wrote when you were four, your adolescent haiku, and extracts from your eventually-to-be-completed epic fantasy quadrilogy. We want to hear your best new work as well. And we want people to care about the way words are performed.
Our feature performers this month are award-winning poet and editor Jane McKie, and novelist, playwright, film-maker and performer Alan Bissett.
Open Mic slots are five minutes long; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and be sure of a slot!
