…one of the best readings I’ve ever been invited to! There was a great crowd, the open mic portion was very good, and Mab and Ivy continued in their role as hosts extraordinaire.”

—Karen Head, Poetic Acts in a Digital World

“… the two afternoons which I’ve attended so far have been both interesting, stimulating and a great way of sampling (for me) new poetry and poets.

“… The organisers run a lucky dip for those not ‘lucky’ enough to make it onto the running order. This ensures that one poet is picked out of the hat to take part in the Open Mic and there’s an element of anticipation for both those waiting for their name to be chosen and the rest of us in the audience wondering who’ll be up. I think this is such a great idea and adds a little extra frisson to the afternoon’s proceedings.”

…great combinations of featured readers and open mic readers.”

“On the third spirited outing, word had spread, an eclectic following was present, the open mic had a reserve list, and the space was standing room only.”
