On the Road: Open Mic 1 May with Claire Askew

May 2017 OTR Claire Askew

Inky Fingers is back with the May open mic at Monkey Barrel Comedy. Join Inky for a feast of spoken word with writer and performer Claire Askew.

Claire Askew’s poetry has appeared in all sorts of places both on the page and on the stage: her debut collection, This changes things, was published by Bloodaxe in 2016, and she has performed at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Aye Write, StAnza, and is a Literary Death Match Champion.  Claire won the 2017 Jessie Kesson Fellowship for work on her second poetry collection, still in progress, and she’s also finishing up a first novel.  You can keep up with her other antics on Twitter @onenightstanzas.

We also want YOU! We want your stories, poems, rants, lists, epic fantasy trilogies set in space, you name it. We’ve had a good number of sign ups so far so hurry and secure a five minute open mic spot. Email us at inkyfingersedinburgh@gmail.com. Join us for a night of poetry, stories, and fun! And a raffle!
