Alex Skovron at Café Emjay November 2013

Another wonderful afternoon of spoken word at Café Emjay. Heartfelt thanks to Alex for his stunning poetry, all our open readers, Jules for handling bookings and Mary who worked so hard to prepare the delicious afternoon tea. Thanks, too, to the rest of the café staff, Rhonda, as welcomer, and Samuel, for the sound and these pics.

Stay tuned -- we're aiming for another event in early 2014.

Cafe Emjay with Alex Skovron

Our event at Café Emjay was so successful we’re doing it again. So get your calendar out and put a big red circle around SATURDAY NOVEMBER 16, 3pm – 6pm. Alex Skovron will be our feature reader, and as always, there’ll be plenty of open reading spots.

Because of the popularity of the event BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL. So get in quick if you missed out last time.
Email Jules at Café Emjay to make your table booking:
Closer to the event, if you’ve booked, the café will contact you with the opportunity to pre-order afternoon tea and drinks, which will be served on arrival to minimise noise during the readings.

Admission is $5 and there are always plenty of lucky door prizes.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
