Random Acts of Poetry -Sticky Post

I've now made this post sticky-ish because we need an audience on Wednesday!!

Here's another event you lovers of the spoken word should note in your diaries:

A night of spoken word, featuring Scream Blue Murmur, a group of performance poets from Derry, Belfast, England; Scotland and New York.

Gordon Hewitt, one of the members of the group describes their work as "not strictly poetry" and "not strictly anything else either" so expect surprises!

Also performing at this event are Malaysian poets Bernice Chauly, Elaine Foster, The Happy Unicorn Collective, Jerome Kugan, Reza Rosli and George Wielgus.
And the evening organised by (big drum roll) The Literary Activists :
... a shape-shifting group of people who are dedicated to kicking life into the Malaysian literary scene. They include journalist Daphne Lee, lit blogger Sharon Bakar, poet Bernice Chauly, and bright-young-things Patricia Low and Priya K.
Power to the poets!

(Please pass this information on and invite your friends.)

i'm sure.

people like daphne and priya and pat and bernice and jasmine low and meself started to organise events because nothing was happening unless we made it happen ...

question - can you see yourself becoming a literary activist? organising events of your own?

we can try to help you if you do

That's actually not a bad idea... any leads on how it can be done?

bibliobibuli said...

you can contact me by email and we can knock some ideas around. but basically can you get an audience together and a nice space for things to happen?

Shap shifting ? I hope they turn into leopards. I like leopards.
