Clear a space on the calendar! Worcs LitFest’s spoken word event, Worcester SpeakEasy, is at The Old Rectifying House, Worcester, at 7.00pm for a 7:30pm start every second Thursday of the month … and you’re all invited!
The event is brought to you by your very own Worcestershire LitFest & Fringe, via Poet Laureate Emeritus Maggie Doyle and the unforgettable Fergus McGonigal, SpeakEasy’s host and MC.
Worcester SpeakEasy is a monthly event of performance poetry, with some prose thrown in for good measure (and a little music now and then). Don’t forget! It’s the second Thursday of each month. The event is primarily to promote, showcase and encourage writers from the whole of Worcestershire, but we also welcome those from further afield; there will be an invited headline act each month.
If you want to take part, and we hope that you do, then several open mic slots (of six minutes each) will be available by prior arrangement. All slots for the opening event have been taken – watch this space for a list of performers.
Whether you are a seasoned performer or a complete novice, we want to hear from you! If you would like a slot, please contact either Maggie or Fergus at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get back to you within the hour (okay, maybe not that quickly, but you shouldn’t have to wait too long).
SpeakEasy – the monthly spoken word event from LitFest – curated by Worcestershire Poet Emeritus Maggie Doyle and Fergus McGonigal.
