An evening of poetry and prose at Love Cafe

Hastings Writers’ Group is hosting an evening of poetry and prose at Love Cafe, Norman Road, St Leonards, on September 12 at 7pm.

Readers include Andrea Samuelson (previous winner of Bank Street Writers and Peterloo Prize poetry competitions), Jill Fricker (winner of the 2013 Bare Hands International Poetry Competition), Di Perry, Mike Walsh, Roz Balp and Mike Rayner.

There will be an Open Mic spot at the end of the evening - so audience members are encouraged to bring a poem if they would like the chance to read their own work.

Tickets are £15 and include a Love Cafe meal - pasta and choice of sauces, salad, fresh-baked bread, tea/coffee and sweet treats.

Vegetarian options are on the menu, but vegans are asked to contact the Love Cafe in advance. Bring your own wine - free corkage.

Tickets must be bought in advance as the cafe only holds 40 people, and are available from the Love Cafe or by contacting Jill Fricker at 07922 019250.
