Poetika is a spoken word and acoustic music Open Mic event held every third Wednesday of the month in Salisbury. We welcome anyone and everyone to read or perform poetry, comedy, music, song and stories, and enjoy those of others – no need to book a slot, just turn up and have fun. We meet in the Shoemakers Hall – upstairs in the Pheasant Inn, Salt Lane, Salisbury. Directions

POETIKA 59 – Introducing the 2nd Salisbury Literary Festival

Wednesday 17th October, 7.30 for 7.45, The Pheasant,
Salt Lane, Salisbury

This month’s Poetika is one of the opening events for the Salisbury Literary Festival. Now in its second year, the festival has spread each side of its original weekend to comprise five days packed with author talks, workshops and local events – with appreciation of novels and their writers at its heart. For more information on the festival see https://salisburyliteraryfestival.co.uk/

So we’re taking as a theme the literary, novels and festivals (so your Larmer Tree poems will finally come in handy!). We welcome everyone who wants to read or sing their own work (acoustic musicians welcome) or that of others as well as those people who prefer only to listen – come along to the Pheasant on Wednesday 17th October at 7.30pm!
