If you like gin and poetry then put on some clothes and dry your eyes, because Santa Claus is coming to town 5 (and a bit) months early, carrying books and intoxicants!
July 14th is the official launch date of "Spaces of Their Own", my most recent collection of poems, and this time they're science fictional...ooh.
From computers who judge your life's decisions, to monkey mind reading; from a romance between two protons in the Large Hadron Collider, to downloadable dreams; this collection ought to appeal to poetry and sci-fi fans alike. And if it doesn't, then there's rhubarb gin to drink and forget your woes.
It's a celebration, thrice! Not only is it the launch of "Spaces of Their Own" but it's also the launch of Anne Connolly's "Not Entirely Beautiful" and the first birthday of ickle wickle press, Stewed Rhubarb!
There will also be readings from the humanoids known as: Rachel McCrum, Katherine McMahn, Jenny Lindsay, Tracey S. Rosenberg, Harry Giles and hopefully a video poem from Lucy Ayrton.
Doors open at 5:30pm, The Whitespace Gallery (11 Gayfield Sq, Edinburgh, EH1 3NT)
Tickets are a meager £3, as are the books.
If you're on "Facebook" and you "like"things and have "friends" then you can also join in here, and invite other "friends": https://www.facebook.com/events/467082390051895/?ref=22
