Sudden Fame Friday 24 April 8-9pm

Just to remind all booked readers, that our Sudden Fame event at the Mitchell is next week, Friday 24 April 8-9pm.  Marc Sherland, who is hosting the event, has asked that you all meet him beforehand in the cafe at the Mitchell at 7.30pm, NOT as wrongly stated in this week’s newsmail, 6.30pm. He has asked about the possibility of having a stall to display books and flyers but we are waiting for confirmation from the library staff.

Please note that the slot is only three minutes and will be strictly enforced even if you are in mid-flow. You can make a big impact in that time but do need to choose and time your work carefully beforehand, whether it’s poetry or a fiction extract. To make sure the time between readers is minimized we ask you to get ready to come up as the reader before you is ending rather than wait until they have left the stage to get up.

If you are not now able to come on the 24th please let Anne Clarke know asap  at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it We have 19 people on the waiting list!
