Simmer down at the back and get your notebooks ready.
This is Lit-Talks, a mini-series of lectures from some of the bright brain-universes of the spoken word and literary scenes.
Each performance will be a spoken word presentation on a special area topic – much like the influential series of video lectures but with much more rhyme. This is a full audio/visual spectacle complete with overhead projections and illustrative power-point presentations. Lit/Talks is performance poetry meets the best module in college you never took. Your lecturers for the evening include theatre makers, a novelist, poets, activists, performance artists and surreal space invaders. Get taught.
