This month is chock-a-block full of exciting poetry/literature events, it’s hard for me to know where to start. As well as November’s Loose Muse, there are a couple of other events I’ve also organised and which I hope you’ll be able to come to. But will start with Loose Muse because the line-up promises to be a good one combining a writer who’s not been featured at LM before + a veteran on the poetry scene reading at LM again in the middle of an MA.
LOOSE MUSE – London’s Premiere Women’s Writers Night will be on November 8th the second Wednesday of each month – continuing upstairs @ The Sun Pub, 21 Drury Lane (on the corner of Betterton Street), London WC2B 5RH - 8.00 p.m. - doors open from 7.30 pm. £6.00/£5.00 concessions. Features this month will be:
Rebecca Tantony reading at LM for the first time; she has read in a wide range of venues, including the Royal Albert Hall, the South Bank Centre, and Bristol’s Arnolfini, and internationally, and has also had her work published in anthologies and magazines at home and abroad. She has been writer-in-residence in libraries, schools, and arts organizations, and this year has been touring an ACE funded immersive spoken-word show, ‘All the Journeys I Never Took’, the same title as her second collection (Burning Eye). Rebecca also teaches poetry and creative writing in multiple venues, as well as working in San Francisco. www.rebecca-tantony.com
Kate B. Hall writes poetry, haiku, reviews and fiction. She is President of the British Haiku Society and a member of the Blue Side Poets. She has published two haiku collections Running for nothing in 2004 and Irises in 2015, and her work is regularly published in magazines, journals and anthologies, including the recently launched Show of Hands a pamphlet by Blue Side Poets. Kate is halfway through a creative writing MA with the Open University, and is working on a collection of short stories.
