Everyone welcome.  Bring a poem or any other sort of writing and sit round with a nice brew and a cake and discuss your work with other writers. 

Check out the gig guide!

His love for me is like the sea, As deep as it is wide

Seaswept by him

Stormed by blue eyes

Sucked in


I'm debris in his whirlpool
