  • Join WORD! this Saturday, 12.15 - 1pm - down at the brilliant BrightSparks 'Arts and Health Zone' of Leicester's Riverside Festival.

    We'll share a reading from 'Write Here, Where I'm Calling From' - our's and Writing East Midlands' brand new 'Elder Tree' anthology - and invite poetry and performance via a perfectly formed open mic...

    Anything goes but especially work engaging with the Elders in our lives, and other anthology themes - from summer to heritage, praise to politics - but above all, anything exploring who you are and where you're calling from.

    With original soundscaping from talented WORD! Associate, Mellow Baku, ensemble performance and general cheeriness.

    To book your slot, drop a line to [email protected] - we'd love to hear from you and spend some time together.
