To be taken seriously as a writer, its important to have sleeping problems: follow the steps of Franz Kafka, Sylvia Plath, William Wordsworth and Walt Whitman in this all-night poetry lock-in. If you’re stuck for inspiration, need to write an emergency Valentine’s Day poem, or just fancy an excuse to stay up all night writing some poetry, then this event is for you.
Come and join us as we attempt to write through the night, starting just before midnight and ending as the sun rises. There will be coffee and tea a-plenty, plus some suitably witty beverages. There will be prompts and challenges to pace us through the night; we will inspire ourselves from some choice examples of poetry. Before the sun rises, we will take to the streets with our notebooks and pens.
Places are limited and to cover the cost of food, drinks, and material we ask for a small contribution. Tickets can be purchased here: http://poetrylockin.eventbrite.com
Please bring: a notepad and pen, your favourite poetry collection, and the energy to last the night.
