February: Quiet & Loud
Welcome to February's The Margate Bookshop newsletter - as Februaries usually go, it's a rather quiet time of year for me. BUT I am ridiculously excited about the noise the local poetry scene is about to make. February sees not only one but two major spoken word events: The Kent Poetry Championship Slam will be held at Elsewhere in Margate, after which our good friends at the Bookie Slam will be hitting the road and joining the Faversham Literary Festival. Find more details below! The Margate Bookshop pop-up will be back in town early March, in the meantime here are some highlights for the month.
