Contextual: 12 – tomorrow!

Our twelfth Contextual virtual poetry reading event will take place tomorrow, Thursday 27th October starting at 19:30 Uk-time.

Given the session represents the conclusion of a year’s span of Contextual meetings, it will follow more of an ‘open mic’ format in that there will be no main reader. Have still identified our readers in advance and the list is now full. Please do not turn up and expect to read – though perhaps come ‘armed’ in case we do get through the readers already notified. In order to get as many people reading as is practical, poems must be no longer than one side of A4 and limited to one poem per reader.

Priority has been given to those who have been regular Contextual attendees over the past 12 months, or who have appeared in New Contexts anthologies.
