Event Details

We’re bringing it all back home with an event just for local writers for October’s Yurt Salon. Six local writer’s will be reading from their latest works, which includes poetry, local history, drama and fisherman’s tales. Expect the unexpected!

Tickets are free but please book in advance as seating is limited. You can book here 

This will be a first open call for performers, so expect the unexpected. So far we have confirmed:

Gerard McKeown is an Irish writer living in London. His work has been featured in 3:AM, Litro, and Neon, among others, and has received recognition in The Moth’s Short Story Competition, Over The Edge’s New Writer of the Year Award, The Ilkley Literary Festival’s Short Story Award, and The Berlin Writing Prize. In 2017, he was selected to take part in Penguin Random House’s WriteNow programme. More of his work can be viewed at www.gerardmckeown.co.uk

Peter Kennedy is the author of Fisherman Tales — Bleak and beautiful folklore with mournful accordion accompaniment.

Naana Orleans-Amissha is a poet. Her love of words started at the British Council Library in Accra; continued in Tokyo, with her copying out the encyclopaedia for the simply delight of seeing written words on paper. She writes as a way of exploring layered identities, and the need to add multiplicity in these times when conservatism and simplicity threaten to mute us.

And more to come…

Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start
