Valentine’s Day open mic at the Frog!

14 Feb

What better way to spend Valentine’s than at the Creative Writing Society’s fantastic ‘Red Edition’ open mic night? OK, I can think of a few (a moonlit walk through Montmartre with Albert Camus, for instance), but the chances are that in our cynical postmodern age, this is as good as it will get.

It starts at 7pm in the Frog and Fiddle, tonight, Tuesday 14th February. And in addition to the readings, you will also be serenaded by two superb acoustic music acts: Arms & Hearts and Chloe Groves. So bring your best love poems, love stories, or romantic drama – or bring something completely different. Bring your loved one. Bring your secret crush. Bring a cute kitten.

The Creative Writing Society Game Show!

21 Nov

The UOG Creative Writing Society has come up with a brand new event: A game show night! Led by your host, Mathias, eight teams will battle for prizes and glory at the Frog and Fiddle this Tuesday. The contest will feature five great literary games:

URBAN DICTIONARY
JUST A MINUTE
ALPHABET SENTENCE
COMPLETE THE QUOTE
& PITCH

Each game will provide challenges for the contestants, and laughs for the audience. So come along to the Frog and Fiddle, at 7:30pm on Tuesday 22nd November:  enjoy a cold drink, and watch, or play, games designed for writers, by writers. This promises to be the best thing ever, or at least the best thing since Definitionary! Full event info is available here.

Creative Writing events… You wait all Easter for one and then two come along at once. This Tuesday all associated  with Creative Writing at UoG face a dizzying choice. Here’s what’s on:

First off, there’s the launch party for Issue 5 of the wonderful Show, Don’t Tell magazine. It kicks off at 8pm at Yates’s, so come along for drinks, free copies of the magazine and the possibility of more news concerning the Randall Scandal. That’s hard to resist.

But equally tempting is the Open Mic night, happening simultaneously, about half a mile away, at the Frog and Fiddle. It kicks off at 7:30 for you to perform your poetry, prose, or drama.

Whether you attend the launch, the open mic, or a bit of both, we hope you have a great night 🙂
