I’m MCing Taking the Mic – Northern Takeover

I’ve MCed a fiction night with authors I knew. I’ve filled in once in an emergency at a Word Factory in London. I’ve never MCed an open-mic event – but there’s always a first time.
Here’s the details. Hope to see some of you there.
“This month we’ll be taking our much loved open-mic night to the Crescent Arts Centre Belfast for Takin the Mic – Northern Takeover (and read more here).
The event will be MCed by writer Paul McVeigh and we’ll be curating a number of fantastic spoken word performers including Abby Oliveira as well as the usual open mic performers.
We want to bring as many people with us to Belfast and to facilitate this we’ll be organising a free bus which will departing from the Irish Writers Centre at 5pm on Friday 26 March.”
