~Sometimes the literature world can be a lonely place. Locked away for several hours even days creating a potential bestseller with careful editing and attention to detail such as the storyline and the characters in question can become quite an isolating lifestyle. It’s fortunate then that specific evenings are designed  for writers and poets to meet together, collaborate and share what they have created at home.

On Friday February 23rd 2018 you can sit back and enjoy some creative writers promote and perform their recent work. It’s taking place at the Ham and Jam café on 50, Lancaster Road, Preston.

Simply billed as ‘A Poetry Evening with Chris Deweese and Friends - plus SPARK storytelling’. Taking place between the hour of 7.30pm - 8.30pm.

Here is the schedule of the writers on the 23rd of this month :-

Christopher DeWeese: UK Poetry Tour

The Confessions: a book about diving bells, detectives, garden mazes, flea circuses and murder dollhouses …

Dr Christopher DeWeese is the author of three books of poems: The Confessions (Periplum, 2017), The Father of the Arrow is the Thought (Octopus Books, 2015), and The Black Forest, (Octopus Books, 2012). He is currently Associate Professor of English at Wright State University.

Naomi Krüger

Dr Naomi Kruger’s first novel, May (Seren) is on bookseller Sam Read’s ‘Most Anticipated of 2018’ list and was highly commended in the Yeovil Literary Prize.

Terry Quinn

Terry Quinn’s collection The Amen of Knowledge won the Geoff Stevens Memorial Prize. To Have To Follow is his co-authored collection with Julie MacLean.

The beauty of SPARK PRESTON is that it’s completely free and there is no need to book. The story telling club has been established in London now for the past 14 years and it has recently been a familiar contemporary blueprint for Preston.

The February edition’s theme is DESIRE so expect some love based literary concepts that deal effectively with this subject matter.

Come along and enjoy the creative writing work from the people of Preston in a relaxed and friendly environment :-
