Raving at The Raven... that dynamic duo 'Live'nLippy' - aka Hazel & me - has been off-stage recently, each of us doing our own things, so it was great fun to strut our stuff at Poetry Can on Monday night. As ever, Richard Carder introduced a fascinatingly eclectic mix, from spiritual to bawdy, fledglings to veterans. (Thanks, Alan, for the photo!)
Frome Festival starts this weekend so if the storms let up there'll be dancing in the street on Saturday (actually if the storms ever let up there'll be dancing in the street whatever day it is as far as I'm concerned.) My big event is the Poetry Cafe on Monday night with Elvis McGonagall - booking not necessary but you can check out the event here. Lots of other yummy stuff around all week too so fingers crossed rain won't stop play, or even seriously damage it. And if you can't face going out, tune every available radio to 87.7 for Frome FM's festival highlights: Sunday 5-6pm is "Focus on... Frome's Poets" and during the week there's a short story from a different local writer at noon every day. And all that tricky stuff like downloads and online listening.
