featuring NUALA WATT and ZORRAS
Tuesday 22nd March, 8 – 11pm
Forest Café, Bristo Place, Edinburgh
The Inky Fingers Open Mic takes place in the main room of the Forest
every fourth Tuesday of the month, from 8-11pm. It’s free to come and
free for anyone to perform, regardless of style, experience, or
identity. It is big and celebratory and welcoming and fun. We want to
hear from everybody.
We want your poems, your rants, your ballads, your short stories, your diaries, your experimental texts, your heart, your mind, your body. We want the essay on your summer holidays you wrote when you were four, your adolescent haiku, and extracts from your eventually-to-be-completed epic fantasy quadrilogy. We want to hear your best new work as well. And we want people to care about the way words are performed.
Our feature performers this month are Nuala Watt, a wonderful Clydebuilt
poet with a take on the world that’s both sharp and funny, and Zorras,
the poetry-music-film fusion group who’ve been taking bars, clubs,
theatres and autonomous centres by storm since 2007
