In my last post, I failed to mention that there's even more to this Sunday's Nine Arches/Left Lion Nottingham Shindig than meets the eye.
Before the readings and open mic slots (poetry or prose, 3 minutes each, sign up on the door) begin at 7.30pm, there's a Poetry Surgery from 6pm-7pm. Further information is available by clicking on the link, but basically it's open to all poets, and will involve a Q&A session on the writing and publishing of poetry.
Between 7 and 7.30, there'll be acoustic music from Simon Richie of Hhymn, and of course drinks and cakes are available throughout. Never forget the cakes.
