Stirred (undiscovered) on Monday 28th July was one to remember, many thanks to the guests, open micers and all who attended and made the night very special. Open Micers were:
Melanie Rees, Sarah Miller, Andrew Lawson, Jasmine Chatfield, Rohan Beck, Loz Webb, Emma Wootton, and Ben Willems. We also had a ten minute guest slot from Sarah Fletcher which was really amazing, find video of her poem The Wrestler and the Sailor’s Daughter here.
There was a superabundance of participatory tasks that night, Jess and Pip set their own task with glittery prizes, which was to sketch them in the break, specifically their FACES, winning sketches:
Their guest set was really emotional and moving, culminating in their collaborative poem written that day for Stirred, 8 Unnamed Women in the Bible:
Nadine Andie’s guest slot was worth waiting for, here’s a poem she wrote in the Stirred: Hidden workshop with Anna Percy’s prompt, which you can find more of here. The prompt to put a message in a bottle has been a really good one. Sarah Miller also responded to this prompt on the night and Andrew Lawson’s piece you can find here. But here is Nadine Andie’s poem!
I will post up the responses to the mystery bag task in another blog as this is enough for now I think. Looking forward seeing you all again at the next Stirred on Monday 29th September, theme is: Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton.
