Free to see! Poetry!
Compéred by me, so come and see
What else are you doing with your Wednesday night?
This Wednesday September the 9th is the sixth one now so the format is getting settled and a bit less loose. I do something old, something new, something borrowed and later something a bit blue. This time, I will be attempting to create a new song from audience input in a feature titled Poor Man’s Beardyman which has a coin toss chance of working.
Poetman’s power is to create poets, so blank postcards and pencils will return. Our first two audience sourced titles were Pints and Stars and I’ve got some great recordings from local poets who stepped up to the plate be released soon in an upcoming podcast. I am especially thankful for the performances from Daz McElland, Anthony Ratcliffe, Jamie the Drummer, Charlotte Lunn, and the young lads Sam and Josh who shouted “Poetman” at me in the first place. Some of these beautiful people wrote their first poems in the pub and all of them performed for the first time at #SWIND Spoken Word is Not Dead in Glenfield in the Nags Head.
Poetman’s power is to create poets, these people are the proof!
