Words & Ears was in the very capable MC-ing hands of Sam Loveless this time. He said: "Well that was a lovely night. Big thanks to Pey Oh, Jinny Fisher, Josephine Corcoran and many others both on and off facebook for a top-notch open mic."
And here are some comments (from Facebook) from some of those lovely poets who were there on the night:
"Thank you for hosting, Sam, and coping with the disco-light madness! Great to hear Alasdair and Pey Oh and all the great work on the open mike from haiku to flash fiction." Heidi Beck
"Twas a fab night." Michelle Diaz
"A fab evening indeed. Feeling very lucky to know so many talented and lovely peeps. I'm so glad I moved to the south-west!" Shauna Darling Robertson
"Wonderful evening, beautiful poems, mulled cider on tap. Absolute winner. Pey, Alasdair and open mic'ers had us in the palm of their hands..." Helen Pearse
"Yes, a top-notch evening down in the cellar! Thank you Sam Alasdair and Pey and everyone." Josephine Corcoran
"It was a stellar cellar evening! What a lovely pairing of Pey and Alasdair. And I swear W&E has the best open mic. Well done that Sam, and of course that Dawn, for the mistress minding." Jinny Fisher
