This event is in the past.
Time for Loose Muse again...and it will be a resplendently unforgettable night.
LOOSE MUSE takes place every second Wednesday of the month, at the Poetry Cafe, 22 Betterton Street, London WC2 (closest tube = Covent Garden), this month on Wednesday 9th February. This is London’s only regular event for women writers of all genres, with a generous open mike sharing session plus two featured writers each month.
The night starts at 8.00 p.m. - £5.00/£3.00 concs. Plus there are plenty of chances for you to come read your own work in the open mic readings from the floor.
Kicking off the February event we have the gloriously gifted Adrienne J.Odasso, reading from her first Flipped Eye collection Lost Books – as ethereal as a filigree spider’s web, as rich as a good wine. And in exciting complement, winner of numerous UK competitions, and giving her first ever public performance of her work, the talented Sally Blackmore sharing some of her award-winning work. A definite night to remember!
So come share the passion, share the joy,
Host and fellow poet/writer
