Allographic Open Mic featuring Claire Trévien

Allographic has three forms of live event – the open-hearted open mic with featured guests every last Sunday of the month; Allographic presents..., a loose series of events with bigger names from the spoken word scene, and a burgeoning set of workshops for aspirant poets, storytellers, and other writers and performers.

So, what’s Allographic Open Mic then? It’s a simple concept really – a lyrical invasion of a lovely bar; a stage, a microphone, a bunch of lovely people, and some words.

Step up to the open mic or enjoy the talent on display. Pretty much anything goes, as long as you respect the audience and the ethos of the evening. Bring your poems, stories, dramatic monologues (or duologues!), improv, hip hop, and anything else that fits the bill of spoken word. 

This month's guest artist will be Claire Trévien. 

Doors are at 6:30pm and the gig kicks off at 7pm. The venue is fully accessible to wheelchair users.
Entry is free but guests will have an opportunity to pay what they think the event was worth afterwards. Money raised goes towards our costs and to the In Other Words festival, to keep both sets of events as accessible as possible.
Claire Trévien is an Anglo-Breton author. Born in Brittany in 1985, she resided in the UK for nearly two decades and performed her work internationally, from South Africa to New Orleans. She is the author of The Shipwrecked House (Penned in the Margins, 2013), Astéronymes (Penned in the Margins, 2016), and most recently the pamphlet Brain Fugue (Verve Poetry Press, 2019). She was a module leader on LCCM's Creative and Professional Writing degree. She has now moved back to her native Brittany.
