Would you look at that! We’ve been fortunate enough to bag ourselves a resident blogger, and not just any blogger either, but the fabulous Caroline Hardaker Writes!
She’s here to help spread the word about the fun (and sometimes not so fun) things we get up to here at Mud. We’re a bit bad at keeping you all up to date you see, so Caroline’s going to whip us (and our blog) into shape!
Caroline hails from Newcastle Upon Tyne, and has a first class degree in English Literature and a masters degree in Culture and Heritage from Newcastle University. Her poetry, fiction, and features have been published widely in print and online, and she’ll do (almost) anything to get everyone to have a go at writing or making. She is the Creator behind Knittynudo, and lives with a forest of houseplants, a husband, two snails, and a betta fish with attitude.
Watch this space for her wordsmith wizardry, coming soon (we’re so excited!) …
If you’ve been following us much on social media, you’ll know we’re due a big old knees up at Rough Trade Nottingham to celebrate the launch of us and our first ever anthology, Hunger. There’s going to be an open mic for all poetry enthusiasts to get up and give us a taste of their work, there’s going to be badges, there’s going to be stickers, there’s going to be dancing… and of course, THERE’S GOING TO BE BOOKS!
We have some incredible artists lined up to jam with on the night, here, check them out:
Emily Franklin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdMCYuFBPDo
Cheshire & The Cat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATW-tRQGwWg
Not to mention exclusive readings from the likes of Gabriel Jones, Georgina Norie, Joshua Judson, Rosemary Swainston and many more!
We’ve also been fortunate enough to be chosen for Left Lions ‘Pick of The Week’, too, and so here’s their run down of our event:
Sounds great, right? Will you be there to dance with us?
