Inside Out is open mic for writers.

Bring your writing - poetry, flash, short story, creative non-fiction, perf poetry & more - to share at the mic, up to 5 or 6 mins. Simply sign up when you arrive. Meet other writers, get updates on what's on, perhaps find inspiration, and enjoy stories told.

Inside.out goes back to the future with our musician guest Luke Hurley. Luke was our very first guest back in 2012. It's high time we welcomed him back.

Luke is well-known as a highly experienced independent guitarist and singer-songwriter. He was born in Kenya and moved with his family to Gore NZ when aged 12. Growing up in Kenya and Zanzibar exposed Luke to Arabic, African and Indian styles of music which have influenced him to this day.

Mississippi John Hurt, Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius and Chick Corea were also influences. Luke’s style of playing has also been described as “Indian tabla meets Irish rock”.

His idiosyncratic and perceptive songs - over a career spanning three decades and counting - are admired by many and in demand for recording by other artists. Plus, his guitar-playing skills are simply breathtaking.

Our five-word-challenge words are Lips, Moon, Lift, Smoke, Publish. Write a piece in any style <50 words all up, and enter on the night for randomly-awarded books and chocolate bar prizes.

Come join us at One2One Cafe, 121 Ponsonby Rd for a night of marvellous music and fresh writing. Koha for musician please. With your MC Anita Arlov.

Let's hear what you're working on... on Wednesday 14 March starting at 7pm.
