The beginning of July is a heavy touring schedule which I am delighting in after a week off!
I went on holiday at the end of June and missed several events, I had (I thought) found an open mic night in a pub around the corner from the hotel. After several emails I discovered the internet was wrong! Shock! Horror!
I had a great break by the sea (as prescribed by The Emergency Poet), had a break from technology too, apart from emails organising the Courtyard trip.
I needed that break because the beginning of July is a 10 day run, 10 events, 1 day off, 2 Poetry Festivals, 5 performances;
4th Hereford – Courtyard Theatre to watch The Magnetic Diaries Poetry Play
6th Birmingham – Alfie Birds – Launch night Rhyme with Reason
7th Ludlow – Poetry Lounge in the Sitting Room
8th Ledbury – Poetry Festival
9th Worcester – SpeakEasy – this may have to be missed due to energy levels
10th Worcester – The Quiet Compere Tour (booked 15 months ago)
11th Stratford-Upon-Avon – Poetry Festival: 52 meet/picnic & performance at Shakespeare’s Birthplace
then a mini break in which to write, breathe & teach
13th Birmingham – Ten Letters, MAC – if I can make it
14th Walsall – postponed (from today) workshop Caldmore Gardens
14th Kidderminster – Mouth & Music
I will blog when I can about these events, many of which deserve an individual post.
Have a great week,
Keep Writing x
