Good things come in threes, so say superstitious fools. But maybe they're right as here are three poetry events that you ought to go to. It beats sitting alone in the cold and dark, doesn't it? DOESN'T IT?!?
Dr Who Open Mic night - 25th November - from 7:30pm - at The Blind Poet, Edinburgh
I shall be reading a set alongside Kevin Cadwallender and Tracey S Rosenberg, and a host of open-mic-ers. The event is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, but all things doctery and sci-fi are welcome!
Talking Heids - 26th November - from 7pm - at Sofi's Bar, Edinburgh
The human whirlwind, Colin McGuire, presents Rob A. MacKenzie and Rachel Amey, with open mic opportunities. I may also read a piece or two.
10RED December - 4th December - from 7:30pm - Persevere Bar, Edinburgh
Kevin Cadwallender and Lara S Williams present a not-so-silent night of poetry, prose and music from 10 writers and artists, including the enigmatic pickled egg muncher, Russell Jones.
