Celebrate National Poetry Day with a party at 1000 Trades, hosted by local publisher the Emma Press. The evening will include readings, games and prizes, and the launch of the new anthology Watcher of the Skies: Poems about Space and Aliens.
Pick a poem from a pile and perform it as part of Poemeoke, or bring along a poem on the theme of ‘messages’ and take part in the open mic. Try your luck in the Poetry Book Tombola, or maybe have a go at Pin the Couplet on the Sonnet. Or just sit back with a drink and enjoy being part of the most heavily-themed poetry party ever thrown.
Where? 1000 Trades, 16 Frederick St, Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, B1 3HE
When? 6.30pm-10pm (kick-off at 7pm), 6 October
