So the final day of Manx Litfest 2013 is here – Ben Haggarty has just got his peformance storytelling workshop underway at The Studio Theatre at Ballakermeen High School, and that leaves three more events:
2.00pm in the Cowell Suite at The Sefton – Showcasing IOM Authors – six short talks by local writers… (kindly sponsored by Pokerstars)
4.00pm at Ballakermeen’s Studio Theatre – Ben Haggarty’s performance storytelling for all the family – Maria Morevna, or How Prince Ivan Got a Horse…
8.00pm at Erin Arts Centre – a night of poetry, first from IOM performers ‘Voices’, then UK poet Paul Canon Harris with his People Watching People-Watching show
It’s your last chance to grab a bit of Litfest action for this year, so hope to see you at some point today…!
SO WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT…?
The second Manx Litfest takes place 26-29 September 2013, bringing together readers, bestselling authors and renowned poets from around the British Isles.
It’s going to be a colourful celebration of the written word – four days of readings, Q&A panels, talks, library events, schools’ involvement, workshops and performance pieces. Have a nosey around the website – there are details about the authors/poets/agents/publishers/performers appearing at the festival, and a skutch of other information.
