Come read with us

Posted by Babs Melville

We’re looking to get new readers into our performance pool. It’s nothing scary. Joining the pool means you’ll get an email every two months containing the guidelines for the upcoming event. If you like the theme, you get in touch.

It works something like this:

  1. Either you find a short story that fits, or you write one. Or possibly a bit of both.
  2. You send us a wee bio and some details on your story. We prefer to read the actual piece, or a bit of it. This helps us organise the tone etc.
  3. You turn up on the night and read your work. People clap, cheer and throw their pants at you.

We’ll do anything we can to help. We’re always on the end of the phone/email/various other communication devices. If you want a chat about ideas or feel you could use some editing, you only need to ask. We also run rehearsals/workshops for anyone wanting to practice and get some feedback.

If you’re wanting kept in the loop (and not the ‘loo’ as I first typed) or have any questions, email me at babs at illicitink dot net.
