Full listings for our programme through to the end of spring 2008 are given below. This includes events at the Michaelhouse on the second Tuesday of the month (summarised above), and also Open Mike evenings, some of which will include full sets by guest poets, at CB1 Cafe every fourth Tuesday. At both venues, all will be welcome to read*, but note that slots will be strictly limited to 2 minutes at The Michaelhouse.

We are also in the early planning stages for an exciting collaboration with Kettle's Yard over the summer, and are already booking guest poets for next year's series, beginning in August 2008.

*Sign up deadline is 7.45pm at both venues. Readers will be allocated on a first come first served basis, except that a higher priority will be allocated to readers not already given a slot at recent events. Note that a microphone will be used at the Michaelhouse; we are also looking into the possibility of using a portable mike at CB1 Café (Open Mike events) but a final decision is yet to be made
