Cooperation: Fiction Canteen with Linda Gabriel


Info   Admission: €5


Our next Fiction Canteen event on 10 March will guest star the spoken word poet, Linda Gabriel. Linda is of Malawian origins, born and bred in Zimbabwe. Watch a clip of hers here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBg6Yuo56d8

PLEASE NOTE: this replaces the previously scheduled Open Mike on March 17!

Following her performance, we'll open up a Q & A about her work, and encourage other spoken word poets to perform in classical 5-minute Open Mike style. Linda will join our regulars in giving some expert feedback.

Bring new members and spread the word!

In our space at the Alte Kantine Wedding, we encourage writers in English to come to our Open Mike event every two months and “test-drive” a piece of their creative writing in front of a supportive audience. There is a mini-presentation on an aspect of writing to kick off.

The Fiction Canteen stands for a space to risk the new: to share ideas, be inspired by others’ work, overcome writer’s block, and network with other writers and literary translators. The readings should be in English but anyone is welcome to come.

The event takes the following format:

8 readers (on a first come, first served basis) will read a 5-minute piece of prose, poetry or translation. It has to be your own work. Drinks are on sale at the Alte Kantine bar.
