Readings: May 2011

Next week I’ll be out and about reading my work at two different venues on two consecutive nights. At this rate I’m going to need an agent! Well, maybe not.

On Wednesday 25th May I’ll be reading Five-A-Day Friends at the Bolton Octagon theatre. Yes, for those of you familiar with this story, this is the one with the pumpkin! 🙂

The event is being run by Bolton University as part of their Creative Showcase featuring two evenings of poetry and prose. The event will take place during the evenings of the 25th and 26th May (that’s next Wednesday and Thursday) running from 7.30pm to around 9.30pm. You can come along to watch and listen for just £1. What a bargain, just a quid to see us all squirm in terror!

Tickets will be available on the door or you can pre-order by phoning the theatre (01204 520661). I heard yesterday that they’ve already shifted fifty tickets – eek! fifty! (squeaky bum) – so it might be worth phoning if you want to guarantee your seat.

On Thursday 26th May I’ll be reading Metagurneypunk at the Dulcimer in Chorlton for the final of the Flash Mob Writing Competition. This is a competition being run as part of the Chorlton Arts Festival 2011. Yes, I was one of the lucky twelve to be short-listed – I’m still extremely giddy about it!

All twelve short-listed pieces should be read out during the evening – several of them by the authors themselves. If you can’t come along then you can listen to the live broadcast on Chortlon FM or wait for a copy of the eBook from Seabrooke Associates which will feature all twelve pieces of work.

If you’re able to come along to either event then please feel free to grab me and say hi. I’ll see you there!
