Amateur writers to showcase their work with local poet


Amateur writers and poets will come together on Monday 1 April for the Local Author and Writers’ Showcase.

This free event – held in Scunthorpe Central from 2.15pm to 4.15pm – is an opportunity for anyone to share their own poems and writing, and listen to pieces by published local poet, Kate Brumby.

Whether you are a seasoned writer and performer, or you have never read in public before, everyone is welcome to join in and share their work. Slots will be between three and five minutes to give as many people as possible the opportunity to speak.

Local poet, Kate Brumby, will be reading a mixture of anecdotal verse and poetry from her recently published collection, ‘In the Palm of His Hand’. There will also be an opportunity to ask Kate any questions you may have about her writing process or her poetry in a question and answer session.

Places for the event are free, but are limited and must be booked in advance.

Poet Kate Brumby said: “Talking with fellow writers this week I noted a lovely buzz about the event – I do hope other writers will also come along and share their work too. The support and facilities offered by North Lincolnshire Library Service are fabulous.”

Cllr David Rose, cabinet member responsible for the library service on North Lincolnshire Council, said: “We have some fantastically talented people in North Lincolnshire, and this Writers’ Showcase is a chance for people to come together and share some of the brilliant work they produce.”
