Tuesday, 27th March, 2012, 6pm-8pm, £2
Lit & Phil,
Westgate Road,

Tickets can be bought on the door or online, and include a free drink. For full details, visit:

The event will feature readings from six remarkable writers. 'VP Fest' veterans Jo Brandon, Steve Rudd and Norah Hanson, fresh from appearances at the two preceding events, will read a variety of work from their recent books – Jo's pamphlet-length debut Phobia, Norah's poetry masterpiece Love Letters & Children's Drawings, and Steve's epic travelogue Pulse. They will be joined by Jo Reed and Helen Burke, both former Newcastle students, whose poetry collections Stone Venus and The Ruby Slippers were published by Valley Press in June 2011.

Plus, we're delighted to introduce a special guest; Newcastle poet (and Lit & Phil employee) Cara Brennan, whose as-yet-unnamed debut pamphlet is set to be published by Valley Press in September 2012. Cara will be trying out some material from this highly-antipated publication, which will be available for pre-order on the night at a discount.

The event will be hosted by VP's Editor-in-Chief (and dynamic frontman) Jamie McGarry, and should be a night to remember. We hope to see you there!
