The Cellar at the Poetry Cafe: Poetry & Floor spots this Saturday

The Cellar

Saturday, December 8, 2007
7:30pm - 10:30pm
The Poetry Cafe, 22 Betterton Street, London, WC2H 9BX


Hello All,
Last month's Cellar lived up to the hype of being a veritable Old-Spice bottle of concentrated testosterone, so this month we're swinging the other way. Heading up our all female bill, Fiona Curran will be reading from her Wrecking Ball Press collection, "The Hail Mary Pass". For me Fiona marks a golden standard of live poetry, taking poems that shine on the page and making them a funny, down to earth and involving live experience. We will also be welcoming back Amah-Rose McKnight-Abrams, rising star of the New Blood 2.0 generation, writer of sassy, stripped to the bone tales of London lives and sex-pest's daughters. Finishing off the bill, we'll have a special guest appearance from a previous Shortfuse Poetry Idol winner, back over this side of the pond for a fleeting visit.
I will be throwing a few poems of my own into the mix, and floor spots are open for those that arrive early.
