THE CONFLUENCE SESSIONS
Jake Nathan, Rosie McLeish, Zack Davies and Charlotte Ansell (July 2019)
We are excited to present our 6-month project to introduce all ages to the exciting worlds of stories and poetry... The Confluence Sessions run from June to November 2019.
What it is...
The Confluence Sessions are a new monthly afternoon event showcasing poetry and short stories, suitable for all ages and experiences starting in June 2019.
The Confluence Sessions are a very informal way to hear new and established writers reading their own work in Medway. If you like poetry but haven’t read any since school, or if you’ve never heard somebody tell a story live before, this is a chance for you to find out what it’s like. Plus have some great drinks and food whilst you listen to our poets and story tellers and maybe make some new friends who also like literature!
There will be 4 poetry or short story slots with around a 10 minute break in between each one.
Why it is...
Having run evening spoken word events around Kent for over 5 years, we wanted there to be a way for people with children, or those who might have problems with late night public transport to be able to come to our literary events. We want this to be a way for your children to experience what spoken word is like, and hopefully to foster an enjoyment for listening to stories and poems. There will be a short break after every performance for loo trips etc. (Please note, your kids remain under your charge whilst in the venue.)
When it is...
Saturday 10 August, 2-4pm
Saturday 21 September, 2-4pm
Saturday 19 October, 2-4pm
