Fen Speak December featuring Ian McEwen

December 20, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Fen Speak is Ely’s regular poetry, spoken word and storytelling evening, featuring guest readers alongside open-mic performances.

This month we welcome special guest Ian McEwen:

Ian McEwen’s poems have appeared widely in magazines including Rialto, Long Poem Magazine, Poetry Wales and Poetry Review. In 2010 his pamphlet ‘The Stammering Man’ was a winner in the Templar competition. His first collection, ‘Intermittent Beings’, was published by Cinnamon Press in 2013 and his latest pamphlet, ‘The sideways for it’, by Flipped Eye in 2017. He is a board member of NAWE and promotes the Ouse Muse open mic in Bedford.

“His is an agile, precise language……ever forming itself, a glassy, shimmery experimental music that savours instability.” – Moniza Alvi

There’ll be open-mic slots available as usual – you can book one in advance by emailing jonathan.totman@gmail.com, or just catch me on the night. Hope to see you there for the last Fen Speak of 2017!
