Another Great Open-Mic Night at Chester University


The English Department had another thoroughly enjoyable open-mic night, on 30 January, hosted brilliantly by BA students and Pandora’s Box editors Liz Milne, Jonathan Hay and Cal Buckley.

A wide range of poems and flash fictions were read out: comical, absurd, dark, weird, political, satirical, tender, heartfelt, and thought-provoking. Donald Trump and certain men would have been squirming in their seats. 

A number of prizes were awarded: Jordan Fleming won for the best overall performance; Natalie Webster won for the best impromptu poem or flash; and George Hill and Luke Cheadle won for the funniest piece. 

Thanks to Liz Milne for the photos. To see more, go to:
