The Story Sessions

 

It’s like a folk club, but with spoken word. Headlining authors and poets read to you, and you join in with

‘Flash from the floor’.

100 words of fiction or poetry, written specially, happening to fit the theme, or scribbled in the interval.

Testbed session:

just before the interval an opportunity to try out a brand new piece on an audience and maybe get some feedback.

Occasional music, book sales, some silliness, lots of words.

Want to get involved? We are looking for published authors with great stories or poems and really excellent performance skills to headline (reasonable expenses covered and a couple of free drinks), novice and emerging writers for the testbed, and all and sundry for the flash. Get in touch.

Ideas for future themes? If you have written something you want to read that would be showcased in a particular theme let us know we might build a whole show round you!

This contact form sends us an email – what you put is not visible to anyone else, just you and us. Don’t be shy, talk to us! (The comment box does retain basic formatting when it reaches us – it just takes out line breaks when previewing for you.)
