Caitlin Smith:

Caitlin Smith is best known as a jazz singer, vocal coach, story-singer and song-poet. However she’s been writing poetry since the age of 12 and performed at Poetry Live when it was at the Albion in the mid to late 80s. Caitlin says: “Poetry helps me make sense of the world. It’s my dream to record my 500 or so poems to date and set up a ‘poem a day’ free subscription for these recitations. To date… another 500 poems patiently wait to be transcribed and rewritten into completion.”

Minor format change – open mic first until 9.00pm Musician at 9pm then Guest Poet followed by more open mic

All welcome on open mic, 5 minutes max. Koha entry.
