Poet and performer to give two-hour festival workshop

Poet, performer and actor Pete Mullineaux will give a workshop on poetry at The Forge at Gort festival, Gort, Co. Galway, on March 27th starting at 11am. The festival is run by The Western Writers' Centre (Ionad Scribhneoirí Chaitlín Maude) Galway.

The workshop is open to all with an interest in poetry.Pete Mullineaux grew up in Bristol, UK. His poem "Harvest Festival", published, aged 13, in Macmillan's anthology Poetry & Song, was subsequently recorded for schools by Harrap on the album Man & His Senses. Living in London in the 'alternative' late 1970s and early '80s - he worked in a left wing printing press and played in a punk rock band The Resisters - recording an album in 1979 on Munich's Trikont records. When the band split he went solo as singer-songwriter Pete Zero, with gigs ranging from two Glastonbury Festivals, CND protests at Greenham Common and Brockwell Park to sharing the stage with such diverse luminaries as the early Pogues and Salman Rushdie. His protest song "Disposable Tissues" in support of CND won the 1986 City of London Poetry/Song contest and he also published a collection of songs under the same title. Adapting to the emerging new comedy and performance poetry scenes he played host for alternative cabaret group New Variety in the Old White Horse in Brixton as well as performing with the London based Apples & Snakes - appearing in their first publication Raw & Biting Cabaret Poetry. (1985) His one man show - The Performer's Fear of the Gong - was described by What's On Magazine as "A must!" Around this time he also achieved a first class honours in drama from Middlesex University, wrote for the Paul Merton fronted Comedy Wavelength (Channel 4) and a first stage playWallflowers was produced on the London fringe. 'A Father's Day,' poems, was published recently by Salmon Poetry. Admission is free.
