Include food for your mind and spirit when you go shopping in New Mills this week. The Poetry Trail is on display around the town until 30th September. A pleasant Sunday walk perhaps, with lots more to see as the wonderful New Mills Festival draws to a close?
Following the very entertaining, successful Spoken Word Cabaret, (thanks to the organisers, great artists and gorgeous audience) poets who have poems displayed on the Poetry Trail (including Yours Truly) will gather to read their poems from the trail as well as some additional works.
“Look forward to scintillating readings and electrifying performances from some of the best poets in the northwest of England and beyond.”
Meet me and other Derbyshire writers in Chesterfield.
I’ll be there between 1 – 4pm in the Pavements Shopping Centre.
“Looking for something to read over the summer? Why not come along to our Pop-up Book Fair and browse a selection of books written by Derbyshire writers. The authors will be selling their books and chatting about their work. There will also be a library stall with information about activities and opportunities for readers and writers.”
Merry Month of May Theme – Open Mic Event
Saturday 28th May, 10.30am – 12.30pm
Tomorrow, come and share readings, or just to listen, about the inspiring month of May. I’ll be reading a scene from my fourth novel (which I’m currently editing- bit of a slog – hoping to launch this summer!)
If you are starting out or are a seasoned performer, come along and read your own work, or those of other writers, in a very encouraging atmosphere. Bring something on the theme of May, or any work of your own choice. Ideas and suggestions around the month of May included: Merry Month of May, Maypole, May Day, May Flower, Whit Walks and Brass Bands. All welcome!
