NATIONAL POETRY DAY OPEN MIC
8 – 11pm, Thursday 3rd October
The Forest Café, 141 Lauriston Place, Edinburgh
We’re launching the fourth year of Inky Fingers events on National Poetry Day, with a mega open stage!
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.
