The Dead Poets Salon and Open Mic
Thursday 28th September, 7.30pm. £5 on the door
As ever on the last Thursday of the month we shall be invoking the spirit of a dead poet by hearing their work, hearing something about their life and about their legacy. This month we have something of a re-discovery. Edward Storer, an early 20th century poet, critic, journalist, dramatist and translator has been largely forgotten today. He was prominent in the first wave of Imagism but suffered from the success of Ezra Pound. We are describing Storer as “The Celebrity Poet Who Never Was” – come along and find out why!
The second part of the evening, after we have refreshed our glasses, is an open mic where anyone present is welcome to read their own work, or to bring something they would like to share. We focus on poetry but their are occasional outbreaks of singing and guitar playing!
Let us know if you want to come as the room is intimate and often gets very full!
