SUMMER WRITING CHALLENGE – You’ve got a cute way of talking, You got the better of me, Just snap your fingers and I’m walking, Like a dog hanging on your lead, I’m in a spin, you know, Shaking on a string, you know, You make me feel like dancing, I’m gonna dance the night away.Cheeky Besom Productions are going live with Tavira Portugal in October! They are celebrating the art of lying, Cheeky Besom Productions 1st Anniversary and Festa Dos Anos De Álvero De Campos. Álvaro de Campos is a heteronym of Fernando Pessoa and they sometimes quoted and interacted with each other and other people. CALLING ALL CREATIVES: In Álvaro de Campos’ world “things must simply be felt” Our theme for the evening then is, what do you feel? Bring us your poetry, your stories, your songs, your art. Come on down to the Glasgow Literary Lounge @Calton Bar and tell folk how you feel. It’s the best literary gig in dear old Glasgow town. Each artist will be given a 5-7 minute slot to be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Slot times will be shared on the night. To secure a slot Contact: Ruby McCann: [email protected]. Jim Ferguson will be our host for the evening.
