Hello all,

August is traditionally a slow month for poetry, everyone goes away on holiday and us organizers are left twiddling our thumbs and staring at the wall wondering what we’ve done with our lives until the weight of ennui on our shoulders starts to push us closer to the unforgiving floor as … WAIT A MINUTE!

What’s this? 451 in August? Oh Em Gee! And it features who!? Sean Douglas, Anna Freeman and … and Buddy Wakefield!? The Buddy Wakefield?! One of the top US performance poets?! I’d better scan my eyes down to the event’s section, pull my socks up and get myself sorted because this is amazing! And just for a change it’s on a Tuesday too – Tuesday 28 August to be precise.

And that’s not all.

Buddy will be running a FREE workshop at the Nuffield before the gig for the first 12 people to email pete@applesnadsnakes.org and claim their place.  Get your twitchy finger on your mouse and reserve a spot now – strictly first-come, first served.

I think that’s it, isn’t that enough?

Oh, no. One more thing. Congratulations to ArtfulScribe in Southampton who have secured funding to run workshops and events at The Art House, Southampton, starting on 26th August. See Archimedes Screw in opportunities below.

That’s definitely it now. I need a sit down
