Poetry, prose, drama, criticism, show-and-tell, original work, or something revisited. Each night features an expert or enthusiast from outside the literary sector.
These evenings are an opportunity to showcase the wonderful writing that goes on the Centre, and provide our students with a space to experiment with new work and reach new audiences.
Taking place monthly (or thereabouts), in the Crescent Arts Centre (unless we're on tour or in isolation).
All events are FREE / BYO.
