After much discussion, planning, rehearsing and some stage nerves we held our 'Open Mic' night last Tuesday.
I read a humourous extract from George Orwell's 'Homage to Catalonia' regarding his involvement with the Spanish civil war and by way of contrast another humour piece from local writer Linda Palfreeman's 'Crisis in Catral'
A different evening with good participation from all and a few new talents discovered.
The next Open Mic will be early in 2011.
I attended the monthly Wordplay group meeting this morning and discovered that I had won the monthly short story competition for which a free breakfast is awarded. There maybe no such thing as a free lunch but there is a free breakfast - and I have eaten it!
The week has ended with the sad news that 'Platinum Page' has had to close despite Vivienne's brave attempts at launching a creative writing magazine she has been unable to establish it during this difficult financial climate.
