Following the success of August’s Spoke, and keeping our precautions and proportions, we now bring you September’s Spoke. A chance to peg your writings to the waves of air at Brownhills Community Centre on the last Wednesday, in fact the last day, of September.
Or just come and be entertained by some of the West Midlands’ fine creative writers
7:30 to 10:00 pm - please book in advance for a slot to read and/or a seat to listen. We’re limiting numbers to avoid overcrowding.
THEMES: Hope and Cope
HEADLINER: Kuli Kohli
Kuli describes herself as a creative writer, poet, wife, mother of 3 and full time council worker with a wobbly body and full spirit.
Born with mild cerebral palsy in northern India, her family moved to England at an early age and Kuli found a lifelong passion for writing which has opened up all sorts of possibilities, making her life richer and more rewarding.
Recently interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Tongue and Talk’, you can find out more about Kuli here:
The NEW NORMAL for Spoke:m

***You MUST book an open mic or audience spot in advance.*** PLEASE!!
Message Al Barz on Facebook or...
(We are limiting numbers to maintain social distancing.)
***Come with your own mask if possible.***
(We’ll have disposable ones to spare if you have any difficulty.)
***Please use the hand sanitiser which will be there for everyone to use on entry.***
***If you are ill, or have any dodgy symptoms, let us know and DO NOT COME!***
Entry - pay as you feel. (We’d like £3 but whatever you can.)
*Free* teas/coffees! Other drinks available at the bar.
