Allographic has three forms of live event - “Other Voices”, open mic with featured guests every 4th Sun of the month; “Allographic presents...”, a loose series of events with bigger names from the spoken word scene, and a burgeoning set of workshops for aspirant poets, storytellers, and other writers and performers.
Prices are £5/ £3.50 concessions across the board, with workshop attendees getting free entry to the concomitant evening show if they get up and perform, otherwise you get the concession rate. Unless otherwise stated, all events take place at The Fountain, Regent Street, Cambridge CB2 1DW.

Happy New Year! :D I suppose you’re wanting to know when and what our next Allographic events are? Well...
|3pm Sun 27-Jan-13||Poetry Workshop, run by Fay Roberts||New Year’s resolution to write more? Stuck for a sonnet? Hobbled by haiku? This is a workshop designed to get you writing poetry - suitable for complete beginners and experienced writers who’d like to learn new techniques.|
|8pm Sun 27-Jan-13||Other Voices featuring Malcolm Guite and Nick Stibbs||Our two Cambridge-based features bring a liminal flavour to proceedings with their lyrical and distinctive voices.|
|3pm Sun 17-Feb-13||Performance Confidence Workshop: “Quaking in Me Stackheels”, run by Paul Eccentric||A guide book/ workshop for first-time speakers and performers; a step-by-step guide to preparing for and surviving your début presentation, written by a man with twenty five years of stage experience. (Also suitable for non-first-timers who want to improve their performance confidence! :) )|
|8pm Sun 17-Feb-13||“Allographic presents...”: the Cambridge leg of the Rhythm Method Tour featuring The Antipoet and Mark Niel, with support from Leanne Moden and Patrick Widdess||The ‘Rhythm Method’ tour combines the wit and dubious wisdom of The Antipoet and the sheer delight of Milton Keynes’ poet laureate, Mark Niel. An evening of entertainment not easily forgotten (or forgiven).|
|3pm Sun 24-Feb-13||Storytelling Workshop: “Telling Your Other Voices Story”, led by Superbard||Superbard helps you tell your Other Voices story and turn it into a fantastical tale. Experienced storyteller and workshop leader Superbard will guide you through presenting your own unique story.|
|8pm Sun 24-Feb-13||Other Voices featuring Superbard (George Lewkowicz) and Kaddy Benyon||Our two features come from very different wordy traditions to give you dynamic storytelling and haunting lyrical poetry.|
|3pm Sun 24-Mar-13||Workshop: “The Art of Getting Published”, run by J.S. Watts||Hoping to get your work published? Getting published is an art, not a science. J.S has been poetry editor and poetry reviews editor for two magazines, so knows all about rejection from both sides of the fence.|
|8pm Sun 24-Mar-13||Other Voices featuring... a glorious spoken word miscellany!||And the March Other Voices coincides with Allographic founder Fay’s birthday! WHOOO! - join Fay and a bunch of lovely poets and storytellers (and musicians!) taking to the stage and eating cake. CAKE.
Watch this space for more details of lineup...
Hope to see some of you lovely lot at an event sometime soon...
