A night of great writing and great music in aid of Oxford International Women’s Festival. We will be announcing the winners of the poetry competition, with many of the shortlisdted poets performing. There will also be readings from their amazing new books by Joan Barbara Simon, who is coming from France for the event, and Kimberly Menozzi, coming from Italy. Signed copies of their books will be available, with profits going to the festival. There will also be a special performance from Pomegranite’s Charlotte Geater, and music from award-winning singer/songwriter/poet Christi Warner.

With huge thanks for their logistic support to The Albion Beatnik Bookstore in Walton Street, and to Diiarts publishers, who are donating all profits form the sale of Kim’s book.

All that and open mic, so bring something to read (sign up in advance to annacreates@yahoo.com or songsfromtheothersideofthewall@googlemail.com)!!
