Open Secret – that welcoming, second SpokenWord – every Wednesday at Le Bistrot des Artistes, 6 rue des Anglais, 5è. Métro Maubert-Mutualité (line 10) or Saint-Michel (line 4). At 8 PM, nightlong signup starts, & at 9 the show…Poetry, music, comedy, theatre, performance art, & dance. This Wednesday’s theme is inspired by a poem of special guest Chris Burke’s – “Write it down dammit!”
Chris Burke is an English writer and journalist, whose debut poetry collection, The Noise of Everything at Once, was published by Happy House Books in January. His work has appeared in publications including Antiphon, the French Literary Review, Snakeskin, Prole, the Richmond Review, and Monkey Kettle, and three of his poems were longlisted for the 2014 UK National Poetry Competition. Born in London and raised in Essex, he has also written and consulted on screenplays for film and television.
See you tonight! 🙂
