Continuing their new season of poetry events at The Brewhouse for 2011, Fire River Poets are pleased to announce that the guest poet for their reading on 5 May at 8.00pm will be the Devon-based poet, Jackie Juno. Chairman of Fire River Poets, John Stuart, said “It is very exciting to be able to welcome Jackie to The Brewhouse. We have enjoyed poetry of many styles in our evenings but this is the first time we will have a performance poet who is also a comedian to entertain us … and that is very much what she will do!”
Members of Fire River Poets will also be reading during the evening and, as John was at pains to point out “We always provide a platform for poets of all ages and levels of experience, so there will as usual be an open mic session during the evening for any poet who would like to come along and read. Poets who would like to take advantage of this opportunity should apply through email@example.com.”
The reading begins at 8.00 pm, takes place in the Studio and costs £5.00. Tickets may be purchased from the Brewhouse box office. Enquiries and bookings on 01823 283244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
