We’ve been meaning to stage some kind of event for a while, but it never happened; mainly because we were always too preoccupied in the final stages of putting together the magazine to plan any kind of launch for the thing. Then, a week or so ago, the folks over at the Milton Keynes Gallery invited us to curate one of their Scratch Nights (previous Nights have been in the form of gigs, film screenings and all sorts of other art-related shenanigans), and in a fit of productivity we agreed.
So here’s the plan so far: on the evening of the 24th of February, from 6:30–8:30pm, there will be a (free) evening of spoken word at the MK Gallery. Confirmed readers so far include Evie Wyld (acclaimed author of After the Fire, A Still Small Voice),
general spoken word polymath Raymond Antrobus , and writer/journalist Jean Hannah Edelstein. It’s a bloody good line-up, and I am reliably informed that there will be some kind of booze available, so there’s also that.
You can download the flyer for the night here.
Update (12/02): Sadly Raymond Antrobus had to pull out, however we can now announce that two of our other readers are erstwhile Structo authors Aidan Thomas and Richard Stokes.
