The Word is it’s a big night

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - MONIAIVE ATTRACTS THE TOP NAMES -

Brave New Words Brave New Words will re­turn to The Stove in Dum­fries tonight for a spe­cial event mark­ing the sec­ond an­niver­sary of this monthly plat­form for new writ­ing, spo­ken and sung.

The night will con­sist of a mix of per­for­mances by po­ets and song­writ­ers, with an “end of the world” theme, and the launch of a brand new zine called Not Safe for Work.

Or­gan­iser Martin Joseph O’Neill said: “It’s been an in­cred­i­ble two years with some amaz­ing tal­ent on show. We’re look­ing for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing and to what the next year has in store.”

The open-mic night is part of The Stove’s mis­sion to bring vi­brancy to evenings in the town cen­tre.

Over the past two years, Brave New Words has been a sta­ple in the heart of Dum­fries, at­tract­ing emerg­ing writ­ers, per­form­ers, singer­song­writ­ers, co­me­di­ans and even ma­gi­cians.

It has show­cased some of the big­gest names in the spo­ken word and po­etry scene and con­tin­ues to run work­shops on cre­ative writ­ing and per­for­mance.
