Just a quick note to let you know: July’s show (this coming Wednesday, July 11th, at Venus Envy) will feature local hero Sandra Ridley.
Sandra has published two books of poetry – Post-Apothecary and Fallout, the latter of which was a finalist for the Ottawa Book Award and won the Saskatchewan Book Award for Publishing.
She has featured at Tree, Pivot, VERSeFest, and the Ottawa International Writers’ Festival, and is the winner of the 2012 Battle of the Bards at the International Festival of Authors.
As always, our feature performance will be preceeded by an all-women open mic. If you ID as a woman please feel free to sign up at the door and perform. While our stage is women-only, everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy the show, regardless of gender.
A final note: July 11th will also be your last chance to see Faye Estrella at VoV – our host is moving on to pursue other interests and, starting next month, we will have a new host: the adorkable Nadine Thornhill (who will be joining us again, as co-host, this month).
See you all there. 🙂
