Battle of Verse at the Eccentric Club (26th March 2009)
26th of March 2009 at 19:31
(The Arts Club, 40 Dover Street, Mayfair; nearest tube: Green Park)
We call you, Mighty Knights of Verse!
To cross your pens and show your force
With words of wisdom - so diverse,
That sometimes wisdom looks adverse!..
Use allegories – but with care!
Use rhymes – so rivals would despair
And being lost for words, they’d glare
How you will win with grace and flair!
A festival of eccentric (and not so eccentric) poetry - featuring some cutting-edge contemporary verse vs lyric recollections from dusty archival drawers of the authors and publishers, and incorporating the election of The Grand Master of Verse of The Eccentric Club.
Though the event is limited to members, their invited guests and members of friendly and reciprocal clubs, all attendees are welcome to volunteer taking the part in this spectacular tournament! Just let us know in advance of your intentions to fence with words and rhymes on the evening, and we'll make sure you are expected.
We will consider late additions to the list of participants until the 21st of March, so if you enjoy playing with words, if you do write or have ever written anything which in anyone's opinion may amount to being a poetry, raise your pen, wave your manuscript and win your trophy!
Please note that a small fee towards our administration costs will be collected - £15 per person.
Please contact the Club Secretary with all enquiries.
