I have not read any prose thing of mine yet at MOOSE's Weds. nights at the NS, but I am a regular at Port Veritas's Tuesday night and a board member of PV. I'm not a slammer, however, so I wouldn't call what I do "performing" if that means a lot of actor-like drama. If that's what you put on, then I suppose I might not fit, but I have a story, in the vein of a Child's Christmas in Wales, about summer camp, takes about 10 mins to read (really, I don't mean 20), and is prose in a Dylan Thomas kind of way. I've never been able to read it in one piece. Is there room on Weds eve to read such a piece?

Looking forward to Wed 3/11/09 for you to host Kevin Brooks!
If anyone can make it they should, they will not regret it.
