A working microphone, since they are going extinct I thought I better take a photo.
The lovely Zella Compton sharing a fairy tale with a twist! You can
read her work in The Ten Rules of Skimming.
The family having a bit of fun.
Trying to get a few arty shots.
Getting a breath of air before the performance.
The talented James Schillemore who organised the Spoken Word Event!
Off the Post a great book for children.
Joe McQuilken is a great poet with so much energy - I love his work,
once seen never forgotten.
I always enjoy hearing Diana Bretherick read, she knows so much about her subject
matter. I was a little freaked out when she read the chapter of her novel. It was the
same chapter that I had read the night before the event.
I'm really enjoying the novel
(but seriously - what are the odds?)
City of Devils by Diana Bretherick
Will Sutton was revealing some toe tapping talents. He's a
great sport, he even made time to listen to some of my daughters poetry.
I hope you buy his book
Lawless and the Devil of Euston Square
The lovely Annie Kirby treated the audience to a couple of chapters from the
novel she's working on. I hope it gets picked up by an agent or publisher, it's so
well written. If you have a story about Portsmouth you should get in touch. Annie is part of
the You, Me and Everyone Project.
It's the first time I've heard this kid read - but watch this space, the girl got talent.
I wish I was writing like her at her age. The name is Katie Gill. I'm
hoping she will be a guest on my blog before she gets famous.
Me having a great old time.
