Despite my poor attendance at The Crunch open mic night recently (I haven't made an appearance since August due to breaking my foot in early September), I have been selected by Adam Sillman to represent the night at the Dylan Thomas Festival edition of Stuff Happens, a showcase of up and coming local poets held at The Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea.
From the 2009 Dylan Thomas Festival brochure:
"The third of our occasional events, where several young, up and coming local poets deliver short, sharp readings between music, Dadaist doodlings and other fun stuff happening!"
For more information, go to the Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=169479122987&ref=ts
or visit The Dylan Thomas Festival website: http://www.dylanthomas.com/index.cfm?articleid=8653
Scheduled to read on the night are Daniel Jenkins, Joseph Thomas, Kelly Constanza, Rebecca Lowe, Dave Hughes, Phil Night, Elisa Evans, Rhian Edwards, Phil Bowen and myself. There will also be a mix of art and photography on show from Zara Bird-Wood, Andrew Hobden, Luke Bolch and Kerry Evans.
It promises to be a fantastic night, and it's absolutely FREE so I can see no real excuse to miss it if you're in Swansea or the surrounding areas on Sunday 8th November, unless you hate poetry or honestly feel you have something better to do.
Kick off is at 7.30pm at The Dylan Thomas Centre, and there will be the usual festival deals on bottled beer.
I hope to see you there!
