Port Eliot Festival 2011 – Nick needs your Votes!

Cornwall’s monthly night of wonderful words, Telltales, is offering one writer the opportunity to take to the stage and showcase their stuff at the Southwest’s premier literary festival, Port Eliot.

Nick Jarvis has been shortlisted from the many contenders and now needs your votes, so please Click Here  now and help make this happen.

(Voting closes on Sunday July 3rd)

Nick’s submission for this competition is a humorous poem about heartache, a word game of confusion that hopes to wrap the audience up in the experience of losing track of who you are.

The poem can be read on the Telltales website, or you can watch it below, and then VOTE folks. Thanks!

29th March – Falmouth – Telltales: Future, Perfect?

Nick, the last time he performed at TelltalesTelltales‘ is Falmouth’s monthly evening of short stories, novel extracts, poetry or prose; a chance for readers, writers and listeners to gather together and hear what Cornwall’s writing scene has to say for itself.

This month’s theme is ‘Future, Perfect?‘ and it promises to serve up glasses of optimism laced with despair, a slice or two of prophecy, some apocalyptic sprinklings, a shot of hope, topped off with the drinking straw of dystopia. Alternatively, of course, it could be referring to a somewhat unusual tense. I guess there’s only one way to find out.

There will be at least six writers reading their own work for your enjoyment, including Mac Dunlop and Nick Jarvis.

Telltales happens at The Rum Bar, above Nancy’s, in Falmouth (TR11 3PN) on 29th March. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
