Inky Fingers Open Mic
Tuesday 7th July, 8pm
Forest Café, Lauriston Place
The Inky Fingers Open Mic is back once again! On the first Tuesday of the month between 8-11 pm, it’s free to come and free for anyone to perform, regardless of style, experience, or identity.
We want to hear from YOU. 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.
We are very excited to announce that this month’s feature is Chrissy Barnacle.
Chrissy Barnacle is a human and story-teller hailing from the grimey shores of the clyde who writes spiked and honest nylon-stringed folk, about, among other things; hazelnuts, cannibal rats and the impossibility of love.
Open Mic slots are five minutes long; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and be sure of a slot. Get there for 7.30 and have a chat with the people at the café to find the Inky organisers. We’ll see you there!
