Writers at the Goods Shed – Julia Bird
19 June | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Doors open 6.30pm. Introductory price of £4. Pay at door. Refreshments included.
On each of these ‘WAGS’ sessions, being held in our railway carriage “Mary Jane” behind the Goods Shed, we have visiting published writers from various genres who, for the first half of the evening, will present, read and talk about their work.
Then, after a break for refreshments, there is an ‘open mic’ session in which the floor is open to any writers in the audience who may like to share and read a piece of their own work – just sign up to share as you come in.
Doors open at 6.30pm. Talk/reading/etc begins at 7.00pm.
Julia Bird grew up in Gloucestershire and now lives in London, where she works for the Poetry Society and as an independent literature producer and promoter at Jaybird Live Literature. Her professional specialities are producing touring live lit shows and devising bookish projects with public involvement – see www.jaybird.org.uk for details of previous activities.
Hannah and the Monk was her first poetry collection, published by Salt in 2008, and Twenty-Four Seven Blossom, her second, was published in 2013. You can download recordings of individual poems direct from the Poetry Archive website. Now You Can Look, an illustrated poetry pamphlet, was published by The Emma Press in 2017.
Introductory ticket price of just £4.00 – pay on the door on the night
