July event with Andy Jackson

This month’s Reading Room at Skeabost Hotel on 30 July sees the return of the lovely Andy Jackson – poet extraordinaire and Baker Prize winner.

Andy will be running a short workshop on the afternoon of 30th July between 3.30 and 5.00p.m. – the theme is storytelling in poetry and flash fiction. £5 to members and £10 to non-members. Please let us know beforehand if you’d like to attend the workshop.

The evening event will start at 7.00p.m. with an open-mic session – we haven’t had one for a couple of months, so there must be new pieces of work to read to our eager audience? If you’d like to read, please contact us at skyereadingroom@yahoo.co.uk before the event so we can organise a programme. Andy will be reading in the second part of the evening. The evening is free to members and £4 to non-members. It would be lovely to see as many folk as possible to support Andy as he reckons his previous reading with us was the most enjoyable reading he’s given.

We have some exciting announcements to make on 30 July, including news on the upcoming Anthology, this year’s Baker Prize and more….
