Hi gang,

Even though Christmas is just round the corner, and everywhere is covered in tinsel, December’s Loose Muse has a distinctly Cornish flavour, as well as being a really full and exciting programme to start the season’s celebrations….

LOOSE MUSE – London’s Premiere Women’s Writers Night.
Wednesday 12th December – the second Wednesday of each month.
@ The Poetry Cafe, 22 Betterton Street, London WC2 (closest tube = Covent Garden),
8.00 p.m. – £5.00 – £3.00 concessions

Features this month:

Lesley Hale is a Cornish poet who started writing for publication in her early teens. After years of neglect she enrolled at Angela Stoner’s creative writing class about ten years ago. Lesley enjoys performance and experimentation. Her poems have been published by Poetry Cornwall and South magazines.

Angela Stoner is also from Cornwall believes in the healing power of metaphor and her writing and workshops reflect this.  Her work has appeared in literary and professional journals and anthologies.  She has two published books, Once in a Blue Moon (Fal publications) and Weight and Flight (oversteps books).  She loves the direct connection of performance, particularly in partnership.

Special Guest – Vrouwkje Tuinman, a Dutch writer, poet and journalist, who has performed at Loose Muse more than once over the past year, and makes a welcome return to test out some her new material in London.

Special Play Spot – Linda Landers presents….A Perfectly Innocent Love –
A 10 minute play about a middle-aged woman tired of the games men play, yet still listening to an offer she can’t refuse. Featuring Vincent Lewer, Papillon de Nuit, Marek Hollands, and Dylan Geoghegan.  Linda is a prize-winning poet, writer of plays and songs, and a multi-media artist, whose work has been compared to Evelyn Waugh.
