Poetry Tonight

Yep, a first and overdue mention on this blog for the fine folks involved in the Whitehouse Poets, who have their weekly poetry night tonight, in the nice boozer of the same name.

Kicking off at 9pm, this week's guests for the Whitehouse Poetry Revival are Keith Armstrong & Guy Hudson.

Here's some copy and paste guff:
Keith Armstrong was born in Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne, where he has worked as a community development worker, poet, librarian and publisher. He now resides in the seaside town of Whitley Bay, is coordinator of the Northern Voices creative writing and community publishing project which specialises in recording the experiences of people in the North East of England.

Guy Hudson was born in Mansfield and grew up in a Lincolnshire village.He is interested in poetry as a spoken word medium and seeks to promote the oral tradition of poetry. This year he graduated from Lincoln University with a BA in English and hopes to teach Literacy in Prisons. He is married with two children.

Here's a vid of Keith Armstrong, but the quality is fairly crap.
