As you can see from my gig list, I will be performing TWICE this week at the Scotia bar. The Scotia has a long history of supporting writing and popular performance. The Scotia Variety and Music Hall which used to stand next door (before it became the Metropole Theatre) was once run by Stan Laurel's father.
First up, tonight (7-10pm) I will be competing in the inaugural Tenner Slam - a one-round poetry slam (which may be accompanied by more than one round of drinks). This should be fun.
On Wednesday (8-11pm) I will be competing again - this time reading one of my short stories in their annual short story competition.
