As part of this year’s festival (16th-25th September) writer VG Lee will be hosting an evening celebrating local writers and poets at a spoken word event on Friday 23rd September. Each performer will be provided with a fifteen-minute slot to introduce and read from their work. A performance fee will be paid and there will be an opportunity to sell books and pamphlets.

In addition, we have arranged a workshop with VG Lee on Friday 16th September to help you to prepare for your performance and give you a chance to meet your fellow performers before the night!
