OPEN MIC NIGHT 10: SEX

Open Mic 10 Banner.jpg

Join us at Prozak Kafeneio Wed 10 May 8-11PM for an evening celebrating natural, supernatural and deviant verbal expressions of the joys and tribulations of copulation. Performances and readings shouldn't be more than 5 minutes long, and preferably less. Work must be original and can be performed in any language you want, unless you're grunting, oohing or aahing, in which case we prefer English or Cypriot.

Join Open Mic Night 10 on Facebook.

A Distant Childhood Wonderland: A Poetry Workshop

A Distant Childhood Wonderland: A Poetry Workshop

Poetry Workshops at Write CY

This poetry workshop led by poet Evdokia Charalampous will guide our writing towards a detached exploration of memory. Using the work of contemporary poets like Jana Prikryl and Jennifer L. Knox as examples, we’ll see how to make our poetry emotionally direct rather than sentimental and why an emotional detachment on the part of the poet can facilitate the delivery of more evocative expression. 

Specifically, we'll be looking at:

  • what makes poetry different from other types of writing and what poetry can express better
  • why memory is an important creative device

  • why it’s important for poets to keep a distance from their writing and how that distance can be achieved

  • in what ways a poem is defined by its structure
     

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

This workshop is in English but participants can also write in Greek. The cost is €10. If you register but for any reason can't attend, please let us know at least 3 days before the event.


Evdokia Charalampous grew up in Athienou, Cyprus and completed her MA in Creative Writing at the University of Portsmouth. Her poems have been published in The Poetry Review, The London Magazine, and elsewhere. She has written reviews for art exhibitions, music and film for websites like Being Human, the official website for the British Festival of the Humanities. She also worked in Aspex gallery as an art workshop leader for preschool children and as a storytelling workshop leader for teens and pre-teens.

OPEN MIC NIGHT 9: BETRAYAL

Write CY Open Mic Nights

Have you been stabbed in the heart or back recently? We're looking for some hardcore betrayal—poems, stories, songs, rants, manifestos or laments of 5 minutes or less will do. Anything over that, we'll truss you up like a turkey and hang you from the rafters.

Open Mic Night 9 is going down on Wednesday 22 March, 2017 20:00-23:00 at Prozak Kafeneio. If you've got material to perform, please sign up by 19:45. Check out some of our past performances here.

€2 euro donations to the Write CY Solvency Fund will be collected in a halloumi jar by Cypriot haiku artist Fortino Samano.

Like what we're doing? Don't keep us a secret. Share us with the world.
