It’s MudFest this week, people! MUDFEST!
If you haven’t heard about this yet, it’s a splendiferous showcase of live art, performance poetry, eclectic live music, an indie marketplace, a poetry kissing booth… And it’s the launch of the new WOMAN Anthology from Mud Press. The event is being directed by Founding Editor Georgina Wilding as part of the Nottingham Poetry Festival, and (in my humble opinion) this looks to be the highlight. George has been promoting the festival all over the place, and even popped up on BBC East Midlands prime-time news to perform and bit of spoken word poetry and advocate poetry to a ‘not-so-sure’ audience. As you do.
I’m incredibly proud to be a part of Mud Press, in that I became their In-House Blogger some time ago. But even if I wasn’t part of the team, I’d still think this event kicked ass.
