Digital Open Mic showcases Fife talent

Sunday 12 September 2010

The Cyber Slam on Saturday was followed by Fife’s Risk-a-Verse Open Mic, which included live and Skyped contributions from poets, most either living in Fife or with Fife connections. Like the Cyber Slam, the Open Mic was webcast and the afternoon was studded with poetic gems. The poets taking part were: Andrew Ferguson (pictured above, who appeared via Skype), Etta Dunn, Andy Jackson, Lyn Moir, Colin Will, Anne Connolly, Milton Balgoni, Eddie Gibbons, Iain Gray, Anna Stewart, Brian Johnstone, Ali ‘Harlequinade’ Maloney, Robin Cairns, Eleanor Livingstone, Kevin Cadwallander.

The return of some of the  Cyber Slammers to the mic rounded off  a highly successful afternoon, proof of what a digital celebration of poetry offers.
