OUTSIDELEFT QUIET NIGHT OUT
at the Bear Bookshop
Wednesday, June 7th, 2023, 7pm...

OUTSIDELEFT Quiet Night Out has been organised together with our beloved Bear Bookshop in Bearwood. The evening will feature readings, poetry and conversation, and subsonic music. A deep dive into the heart of Black Country poetry and fiction.

We'll be hearing poetry and prose from RM Francis; from his new widely acclaimed book of poetry, The Chain Coral Chorus and from his enthralling novel, The Wrenna.

There'll be a conversation between Rob (RM Francis) and fellow Black Country writer, the renowned Kerry Hadley-Pryce, about what informs their work and the teeming creativity of the region. In truth, who knows what else they'll talk about. Kerry will read from her recent book God's Country (Salt Press) - amazing, unique, insidiously nail biting unnerving!

Jay Lewis, steeped in poetry, music and film is a natural performer. His spoken word piece, The Kingfisher, is well worth seeking out on the Streamers. The Kingfisher chills me like early Dennis Cooper. Jay is an editor and frequent contributor to Outsideleft, you can find his music criticism here.

We are currently working closely with Wayne Dean-Richards in intermittently publishing his oftentimes dark and sometimes deliriously funny, but often not, series of poems, It's a Mad World, But Funny. We're absolutely thrilled that Wayne has agreed to come from Quinton to be such an incredible presence in opening the show. And it will be a show for sure.

Our great friend WOODENHAND will be on hand, to gently rejuvenate our psyche between the blowtorch-like blasts of our authors. WOODENHAND's subsonic introspective modal interludes, woven with guitar, beats and loops will soothe our return to the night.

Oh man, we couldn't be more excited, the Quiet Night Out could be our best thing yet.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
