The Good Ship,
Kilburn High Road

February is definitively the cruellest month, no matter what Mr Eliot says, as it yields Becca's birthday and she is getting OLD OLD OLD! Come and cheer her up please at Feb wordPLAY - the stunning line-up at which is the only prospect keeping Ms. Fenton jolly as the sands of time trickle steadily on...

And in the true spirit of wordPLAY, all of you other unfortunate souls who have a Feb birthday get concession rate of £3.50 on the door on the night when you flash some ID...because misery loves company! ;)

So, enough wallowing...

Our Frenetic Featured Writers:
Annie Freud - Freud has been described as a poet who writes with "real gusto". A Guardian review talks about the "obvious delight' that she takes in language, describing her collection The Best Man That Ever Was as a "magpie-like collection of odd and beautiful words and phrases".

Simon Barraclough - Simon's debut poetry collection, Los Alamos Mon Amour (Salt Publishing) was shortlisted for Best First Collection in last year's Forwards.

Our Gushing Guest Stars:
Denrele writes about love, lust, life and other sexually transmitted diseases. Her work has been published in many journals and anthologies including IC3: The Penguin Anthology of New Black Writing (Penguin, 2000), Velocity: The Best of Apples and Snakes (Black Spring Press, 2003) and A Storm Between Fingers (Flipped Eye Publishing, 2007). She lives in London and dreams of flying.

Obi Iheme - Obi went down a storm at Amnesty fundraiser eve in 2009, so now makes his first appearance at wordPLAY with his superb short stories.

Martin Plimmer - Martin is a journalist, writer, abridger and master short-story teller. Let him entertain you.

Sarah Day stuns with sublime prose that sneaks up and stuns you! Back by very popular demand.

Music: Steven Quincey-Jones plays an aromatic blend of chirpy country and macabre Beatlesesque rock ‘n’ roll. His most recent long EP, Hackney Empire, was release on CDR in September 2009.

Hosted by Becca
Presents welcome but optional ;)
