WATERLOO PRESS & AMBIT MAGAZINE present Poetry & Story at the X Roads a night of readings featuring the launch of two Waterloo Press titles.

The Odysseus Poems
Fictions on the Odyessy of Homer
Judith Kazantzis' sequence of interwoven voices casts the many struggles with monsters, the seductions and loneliness of love, and the long wanderings of heroes into a vivid meditation for our turbulent times... Marina Warner

The Unicycle Set
Nick Burbridge
Just one click on Nick Burbridge's website reveals a man driven: if you thought his compositions as leader of ranting roots rockers McDermott's Two Hours were edgy, prepare yourself for a ride, his poetry is radical and subversive - Simon Jones, fRoots

and special guest, Editor-in-Chief of AMBIT Magazine, Martin Bax, reading from his latest short story collection, Memoirs of a Gone World (Salt, 2010).
These stories are formally adventurous, modern and post-modern, sometimes very droll, and often distinctly filthy. Isn't that enough for anyone? - Geoff Nicholson
with music from Nick Burbridge and fiddler friend

and OPEN MIC - musicians, poets & flash fictioneers welcome! 
(5 spots - come early to book - one song, poem or page max)
