CHESTER OYEZ! is Chester Literature Festival’s Spoken Word Performance Weekend taking place on 18/19 October 2008. Cheshire poet Gill McEvoy has been appointed Artistic Director and has invited me to run a workshop on Saturday 18th October 2008 3.00pm – 3.40pm in the Storytelling Tent, Cathedral Green. This is the first Chester Oyez! and Gill asked me if I’d include art in the workshop, so come along and join me in making your own poem card from scrapbook materials and poems – poems provided, or bring your own, or pen a few lines on the day! Look out also for ‘Pop-up Poets’, including Adam Khan and Ben Crystal, in Waterstones and Costa. Full programme will be available soon on the website.
