Join us on 12 April 2012 to celebrate the shortlist of the Venture Award with readings from shortlisted poets:
Rowyda Amin, Cath Drake, Doreen Hinchliffe, Russell Jones, Andrew Martin, Sarah B Westcott
Headline guest, Warsan Shire, will also read from her incredible new pamphlet ‘Teaching my Mother How to Give Birth’. Tickets are only £7 and it all happens in funky Bethnal Green at Oxford House. In keeping with the spirit of celebration, flipped eye publishing will send a free copy of their fiction anthology x-24: unclassified to the first 20 people who buy advance tickets (only 3 x-24s left!), to the 20 people after that, they’ll send one of their exclusive travelcard/train ticket wallets. Also ALL ticket holders will be entitled to a FREE book from the flipped eye publishing books on display on the night. So, if you’re one of the early buyers you get TWO flipped eye books for your £7 ticket PLUS the fantastic readings.
