Winter Speakeasy & Open Mic with poet, Jim Ferguson. ‘Love and Betrayal’ is an evening of true love tales told live! You can participate by submitting something to read, perform, or slam and share the joy, pain, ups and downs, and the sheer madness of falling in or out of love.

‘We are asking for submissions in any genre about love, current and past love’s, lost love, betrayal! We’re asking you to tell us, what’s love got to do with it, in any genre? It’s going to be an evening to remember! Join us for a taste of Scotland’s new and emerging writers and the best of new literature in action hosted by poet Jim Ferguson. This is not an evening to miss!!!’

Jim Ferguson is a poet and prose-writer based in Glasgow. Publications include the novel ‘Punk Fiddle’, poetry pamphlets ‘My Bonnie Scotland’ and ‘Songs to Drown a Million Souls’: and diary-style musings on the Scottish independence referendum campaign of 2014 entitled ‘The Pine-Box-Jig Involves no Dancing’. A review in ‘Northwords’ of his poetry cd ‘More than Quirky’ states: ‘Ferguson’s strong Glaswegian accent is striking and his voice is forcefully expressive, most particularly when reading words and phrases from the Glaswegian dialect… In all poems there is a conviction in the reading, at times both poignant and haunting.’ He works as a Creative Writing Tutor at Glasgow Kelvin College (Easterhouse Campus).
