A Child of the Jago Night

he like your funny fat uncle…
What a great night.
There was a range of fantastic readings on Thursday. Michael Keenaghan kicked it off by reading from one of his short stories. He is known for his straight up style, writing hard man stories, the likes of which seem made for the screen.
Then Joseph Ridgwell came up and read some poems from his Child of the Jago collection that sold out on the night. A fantastic poetry collection that tells the real stories of the East End throughout his experiences. Written with a real sense of nostalgia, whilst still getting to the nitty gritty.
There was also poet Tim Wells reading a range of poems, most of which had a brilliant sense of humour but also an undeniable truth. A poet well worth having a look at. He like your funny, fat uncle only with a sharper tongue and a much better vocabulary.
