Arty and Farty? The University of Brighton Literary Society Open Mic night WANTS YOU!

white noise

Now, if you’re anything like me, you love a good night in a bar, great people and even better entertainment. If that sounds like you too, head down to the Falmer SU Café on Thursday 21st November for a 7pm kick-off and witness the University of Brighton Literary Society’s Open Mic night!

Whether it’s poetry or music that’s your forte, the Society wants you to get involved! The Literary Society is offering a free shot to all performers who sign up before the day. Email to claim the shot that is rightfully yours! Plus, it’s a great place to showcase your work!

The Open Mic night will also play host to a University of Brighton Literary Society announcement. “Small Worlds” is the topic of this year’s Anthology and details of its much anticipated return will be announced on the night. After last year’s “21st Century Waste”, I, for one, am intrigued to see the Anthology come to life! The Anthology takes submissions from the universities of Brighton, Sussex and Chichester.

The Verse editors Matt Iredale and Sophie Mills will be there filming the event, so come down, say hey and grab a drink!


Strange people| New Communities| Changes| Best Days| Old Ways| Subtle Revolutions| New Vistas| Tight horizons | Open spaces| Quiet Wars| Odd lessons | Strangers| Intimacies| Minor mythologies| Small Worlds

So remember – Thursday 21st November, 7pm, Falmer SU Café. It’ll be a great night!

P.S. Rumour has it; some of your favourite lecturers will be performing at the Literary Society Open Mic as well – so no reason not to go really…
