This is just to say: spoken word open mic night

December 6 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£5

Join us in the library on the first Tuesday of every month to enjoy all manner of word-weaving, story-sharing and spell-casting.

We welcome poets, storytellers, and writers of all kinds to share their work (or the work of others) in a safe, supportive, and inclusive space.

Slots are 5 minutes long, and performers sign up on the door – first come, first served! Performers entry is free!

This month, we will be theming our evening’s proceedings on VISION. Interpret this as you will – whether it’s about sight, perspective, looking into the past or the future, or seeing things in a whole new way…

Every month we feature a performer with a slightly extended set and this month’s featured performer to grace our stage is Shaw Worth. Shaw is a student and writer living in Oxford. He was a Foyle Young Poet of the Year in 2016, 2017, and 2019; his work has appeared on the stage in Oxford and in print and online in ‘iamb’, the ‘close’ tinyletter, the Waltham Poetry Competitions and elsewhere. He is currently a reader for Taco Bell Quarterly.

All very welcome to just come and listen. This event is non-ticketed, with entry £5 on the door (£2 concessions/Patreon patrons).

Doors at 7.30pm (performers advised to arrive a little earlier!)

Note: there is no bar but the event is BYOB (wine and beer only, no spirits please!) and this event is 18+
