Invitation to Michelle Elvey's poetry and flash at Spit.It.Out./ Auckland Fringe Festival
I'm writing to invite you to the Spit.It.Out. spoken word series, which is new this year and part of the Auckland Fringe Festival -- already underway in Auckland.
It's an amazing line-up of talent. See the complete gig guide here, and please check out any shows you can while you're strolling around Auckland. Events take place through March 10.
This series includes 28 different gigs spread throughout Auckland with participants from all over the country, with performers as varied as Paula Green, Ian Wedde, Ali Jacs, Vincent Nathan, Penny Somervaille, Gus Simonovic, Vivienne Plumb, Tim Heath and Ya-Wen Ho.
My 30-min gig, which also features Siobhan Harvey and Michael Onslow-Osborne, will take place next Saturday, 2 March, 5:30pm, at The Basement Studio, Lower Greys Ave, Auckland CBD. If you are in the area, stop in for some poetry.
Also, if you're not familiar with the flash fiction journal I edit, Flash Frontier, I'm sending the new February issue along as well. It just came out and includes twelve travel stories. Next issue is the April issue; submissions guidelines are here. We're reading through March 31. The April issue is a special international issue, so please feel free to share around.
Thank you and see you at Spit.It.Out.!
