Uncut Poets at Exeter Phoenix on Thursday May 31st 2018 at 7.30pm with Julie Mullen and Helen Boyles.
The end of May, that happy time between incessant rain and hosepipe bans, brings to Uncut two bright sunshiny days in the persons of Julie Mullen and Helen Boyles.
Julie Mullen is an actor, performance poet and the moving spirit of Word Café in Totnes; her Erotic Poetry for Vegans and Vegetarians has been described (by Brian Patten) as doing for vegetables what Wordsworth did for daffodils.
Helen Boyles‘ new book, Transitions (Indigo Dreams), showcases her continuing fascination with landscape and the human stories emerging from or shaping it, finding the exact, evocative language for the histories of change.
The evening will be compered by Alasdair Paterson and the ever-reliable Mystery Co-Presenter. 10 open mic slots of 5 minutes each are available to those quickest off the mark, though last month’s reserves who came along but didn’t get the call will have priority. Apply to Alasdair here on FB, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 07783 734523.
Admission is pegged at £5 (£3 open mic and concessions). The bar will be open.
