the second night is booked - Tuesday 26th August

hi, please come to the second No Point In Not Being Friends night.

it starts at 8pm, in the Basement Bar of the Deaf Institute, just off Oxford Road in Manchester.

there will be fiction and poetry from: Annie Clarkson, Emma Unsworth, Zack Wilson, Richard Barrett, Emma Lannie, Chris Killen and Michael Halmshaw, a video-reading from Sam Pink, plus lots more things TBC.

and, hopefully, something from Ben Davis again.

also, if you write poetry or short stories, and you'd like to read them on the night, there will be four or five open mic slots. it won't be too scary, i promise. last time everyone was very nice and listened carefully and clapped at the end. there was no booing or heckling. to secure a slot, please email in advance, but last time only one person did, so you could just come along with something printed out in your pocket and probably get on.

it should be fun.

(also, it's free.)

Can't find an email address, alas... but Jenn tells me to let you know if I'd like an open mike slot tomorrow. I would! Jo Bell (poet, Cheshire Poet Laureate 2007, co-ordinator of National Poetry Day, that's my CV sorted!)

Hi Jo - email address is but I will reserve you an open mic slot - just come and find me to let me know you're there... I'm sure you'll have no difficulty spotting me, I'll be the one flapping around looking worried.

See you tonight.
