Word Soup 4

Are you excited about word soup 4? We, the lovely PWN people certainly are.  If you've not been, it's a live lit night hosted at the Continental in Preston. This month's theme is booze and it starts at 8:00 on the 28th July.

Check back later in the week for photos and bios of this months line up but in the mean time see what people had to say about last month's event below...

Was this the best Word Soup to-date? I think so & it was the best attended too. Ann the Poet was brilliant. - Max Henry

I didn't think poetry was my thing but Word Soup #3 was a fantastic evening. Ann the Poet, Sarah Miller and Gary Bridgens all provided an evening-worth of entertainment each and there wasn’t a duff open mic guest, all different, all good (missed Jenn though). Thanks again PWN. - Kim McGowan

I thought it was a great night out with a fine balance of styles and degrees of seriousness. Ann did a great job of making me feel welcome and relaxed on an unfamiliar stage. I was also really impressed with the consistently high quality of the other open mic contributions (something which by its nature is sometimes hit and miss). Word Soup has hit its stride incredibly quickly and already feels like a strong, established entity drawing on the strength in depth of the local writing talent. - Simon Baker

I really enjoyed the whole evening. The venue is excellent and there is obviously a great deal of work going on behind the scenes. I was grateful for the opportunity to contribute and agree that the standard was high and varied. I tried the open mic evening in the other bar but that seems to be more biassed towards musical acts. (Particularly liked the fish poem.) Great stuff! - Dave Carr
