The first Wolverhampton Lit Fest Slam last night. The theatre was sold out and brilliant poetry! The three anarchic hosts were Emma Purshouse, Dave Pitt, and Steve Pottinger. Huge congratulations to Nick Lovell who was a very worthy winner. I fell at the first post (quite literally but that’s another story!) but no disgrace in the marks I had. Jason went through to the second heats and just missed the final. Great to see fellow-writers, artists, musicians and friends Gabrielle, Tracy and not forgetting Hazel Small in the audience. Thank God some-one grabbed a photo! Well done that woman Grace Dore for just happening to have a bongo drum in her handbag in time for the drum roll. Absolutely up for it again, great night. I feel immensely privileged to be part of the scene. Oh and thanks to the old man for being there (sort of) and getting me back in time for a last pint in Stone.
